Isaiah 14:16

_ _ Isaiah 14:16-20. The passers-by contemplate with astonishment the body of the king of Babylon cast out, instead of lying in a splendid mausoleum, and can hardly believe their senses that it is he.

_ _ narrowly look — to be certain they are not mistaken.

_ _ consider — “meditate upon” [Horsley].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

shall narrowly:

Psalms 58:10-11 The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked. ... So that a man shall say, Verily [there is] a reward for the righteous: verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.
Psalms 64:9 And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall wisely consider of his doing.

Is this:

Isaiah 14:4-5 That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased! ... The LORD hath broken the staff of the wicked, [and] the sceptre of the rulers.
Psalms 52:7 Lo, [this is] the man [that] made not God his strength; but trusted in the abundance of his riches, [and] strengthened himself in his wickedness.
Jeremiah 50:23 How is the hammer of the whole earth cut asunder and broken! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations!
Jeremiah 51:20-23 Thou [art] my battle axe [and] weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms; ... I will also break in pieces with thee the shepherd and his flock; and with thee will I break in pieces the husbandman and his yoke of oxen; and with thee will I break in pieces captains and rulers.
