Isaiah 13:14

_ _ it — Babylon.

_ _ roe — gazelle; the most timid and easily startled.

_ _ no man taketh up — sheep defenseless, without a shepherd (Zechariah 13:7).

_ _ every man ... to his own people — The “mingled peoples” of foreign lands shall flee out of her (Jeremiah 50:16, Jeremiah 50:28, Jeremiah 50:37; Jeremiah 51:9).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

And (m) it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no man taketh up: they shall every man turn to his own people, and flee every one to his own land.
