Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 13:22

_ _ wild beasts of the islands — rather, “jackals”; called by the Arabs “sons of howling”; an animal midway between a fox and a wolf [Bochart and Maurer].

_ _ cry — rather, “answer,” “respond” to each other, as wolves do at night, producing a most dismal effect.

_ _ dragons — serpents of various species, which hiss and utter dolorous sounds. Fable gave them wings, because they stand with much of the body elevated and then dart swiftly. Maurer understands here another species of jackal.

_ _ her time ... near — though one hundred seventy-four years distant, yet “near” to Isaiah, who is supposed to be speaking to the Jews as if now captives in Babylon (Isaiah 14:1, Isaiah 14:2).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 13:19-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 13:22

Prolonged — Beyond the time appointed by God.
