    Clarke's Commentary on Isaiah 14:3

    In the day "In that day" - ביום ההוא bayom hahu. The word ההוא hahu is added in two MSS. of Kennicott's, and was in the copies from which the Septuagint and Vulgate translated: εν τῃ ἡμερᾳ εκεινῃ, in die illa, (ᾑ αναπαυσει, MS. Pachom. adding ה), in that day. This is a matter of no great consequence: however, it restores the text to the common form, almost constantly used on such occasions; and is one among many instances of a word apparently lost out of the printed copies.

    Barnes' Notes on Isaiah 14:3

    And it shall come to pass - That is, then thou shalt take up a taunting song against the king of Babylon Isaiah 14:4.

    That the Lord shall give thee rest - (compare Isaiah 38:12). The nature of this predicted rest, is more fully described in Ezekiel 28:25-26.

    From thy sorrow - The long pain of thy captivity in Babylon.

    And from thy fear - Hebrew, 'Trembling.' That is, the apprehension of the ills to which they were continually exposed. Trembling is usually one effect of fear.

    And from thy hard bondage - The severe and galling servitude of seventy years.
