Scofield's Reference Notes

Isaiah 14

Verse 9


Heb. "Sheol," Also; 15 (See Scofield " :-")

Verse 11

grave Heb. "Sheol,"

(See Scofield " :-")

Verse 12

son of the morning

Verses 12-14 evidently refer to Satan, who, as prince of this world-system (see "World," John 7:7 (See Scofield "John 7:7- :") is the real unseen ruler of the successive world- powers. Tyre, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome, etc. (see Ezekiel 28:12-14 Lucifer, "day-star," can be none other that Satan. This tremendous passage marks the beginning of sin in the universe. When Lucifer said, "I will," sin began. See Scofield "Ezekiel 28:12-26.28.14- :".

See other instances of addressing Satan through another, Genesis 3:15; Matthew 16:22; Matthew 16:23.

Verse 15


Heb. "Sheol," Also; Isaiah 14:9 (See Scofield "Isaiah 14:9- :") .

Verse 22


See note 2; (See Scofield " :-") .

Verse 26

whole earth

This universality is significant and marks the whole passage as referring, not merely to a near judgment upon Assyria, but in a yet larger sense to the final crash of the present world-system at the end of the age. (See "Times of the Gentiles," Luke 21:24; Revelation 16:14; Daniel 2:44; Daniel 2:45 "Armageddon," ; Revelation 16:14; Revelation 19:17. No other such universal catastrophe on the nations is known to Scripture.

Verse 28


See note 1; (See Scofield " :-") .

Verse 29

come forth

The descendants of Ahaz.

Verse 32


(See Scofield " :-")
