1 For the Almighty will have mercy on Akobe, and will yet choose Akobe, and set them in their own land: and the strangers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob.

2 And the people shall take them, and bring them to their place: and the house of Akobe shall possess them in the land of the Almighty for servants and handmaids: and they shall take them captives, whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors.

3 And it shall come to pass in the day that the Almighty shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve,

4 That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased!

5 The Almighty hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the scepter of the rulers.

6 He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger is persecuted, and none hindereth.

7 The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing.

8 Yea, the fir trees rejoice at thee, and the cedars of Lebanon, saying, Since thou art laid down, no feller is come up against us.

9 Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.

10 All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us?

11 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.

12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of the Creator: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;

17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?

18 All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, everyone in his own house.

19 But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcass trodden under feet.

20 Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial, because thou hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned.

21 Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.

22 For I will rise up against them, saith the Almighty of hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, saith the Almighty.

23 I will also make it a possession for the bittern, and pools of water: and I will sweep it with the besom of destruction, saith the Almighty of hosts.

24 The Almighty of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand:

25 That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot. Then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden departs from off their shoulders.

26 This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations.

27 For the Almighty of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?

28 In the year that King Ahaz died was this burden.

29 Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken. For out of the serpent’s root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent.

30 And the firstborn of the poor shall feed, and the needy shall lie down in safety: and I will kill thy root with famine, and he shall slay thy remnant.

31 Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou, whole Palestina, art dissolved. For there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone in his appointed times.

Isaiah chapter 14 summary

The chapter begins as the Almighty states he will have mercy on Akobe and still choose Akobe’s descendants. In addition, strangers will be permitted to dwell with Akobe in their land. Many people will stick to the house of Akobe.

The nations will take the remnant of the House of Akobe and bring them to their land. The nations will become a possession of the House of Akobe. In other words, the house of Akobe will rule over their former oppressors.

This chapter features a prophetic message attributed to the prophet Isaiah. The chapter revolves around the downfall of a proud ruler identified as the King of Babylon (from the previous chapter).

The Almighty, through Isaiah, foretells the eventual humiliation and fall from power of this arrogant empire.

The chapter portrays the King of Babylon as a once-mighty figure. Unfortunately, he is now brought low, stripped of his oppressive authority. His removal from power gives the whole earth rest and quiet, at last, joy and singing.

The chapter emphasizes this king of Babylon as Lucifer himself and asks how Lucifer fell from heaven. How did he weaken the nations? Lucifer’s desire to rule like the Almighty has fallen short. And the ultimate authority of the Creator over worldly rulers and the consequences of hubris is displayed.

The Almighty will rise up and cut off everything associated with Babylon, including offspring. In addition, the Almighty will break the Assyrians who are dwelling in His land. The chapter transitions that Isaiah saw this vision in the year of the death of King Ahaz.

The chapter then focuses on the Philistines.

The Philistines are commanded not to rejoice just because the rod that struck them broke. A viper will spring next from the serpent’s den, mounting damages.

Throughout the chapter, Isaiah uses vivid metaphors and allegorical language. He does this to convey the magnitude of the Almighty’s sovereignty and the inevitable fall of the proud. The chapter serves as a reminder of the Creator’s ultimate control over the fate of nations and rulers. Clearly contrasting earthly power with divine authority.

This is the summary of Isaiah chapter 14, Glory to the King of the House of Akobe.
