    Clarke's Commentary on Isaiah 13:15

    Every one that is found "Every one that is overtaken" - That is, none shall escape from the slaughter; neither they who flee singly, dispersed and in confusion; nor they who endeavor to make their retreat in a more regular manner, by forming compact bodies: they shall all be equally cut off by the sword of the enemy. The Septuagint have understood it in this sense, which they have well expressed: -

    Ὁς γαρ αν ἁλῳ ἡττηθησεται,

    Και οἱτινες συνηγμενοι εισι πεσουνται μαχαιρα.

    "Whosoever is caught shall be overthrown,

    And all that are collected together shall fall by the sword."

    Where, for ἡττηθησεται, MS. Pachom has εκκενθησεται, et οἱ Γ Cod. Marchal. in margine, et MS. 1. D. 2: εκκεντηθησεται, which seems to be right, being properly expressive of the Hebrew.

    Barnes' Notes on Isaiah 13:15

    Every one that is found - In Babylon, or that is overtaken in fleeing from it. This is a description of the capture of the city, and of the slaughter that would ensue, when the invaders would spare neither age nor sex.

    Every one that is joined unto them - Their allies and friends. There shall be a vast, indiscriminate slaughter of all that are found in the city, and of those that attempt to flee from it. Lowth renders this, 'And all that are collected in a body;' but the true sense is given in our translation. The Chaldee renders it, 'And every one who enters into fortified cities shall be slain with the sword.'

    Wesley's Notes on Isaiah 13:15

    13:15 Found - In Babylon, at the taking of it.
