Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 14:29

_ _ Palestina — literally, “the land of sojourners.”

_ _ rod ... broken — The yoke imposed by Uzziah (2 Chronicles 26:6) was thrown off under Ahaz (2 Chronicles 28:18).

_ _ serpent’s root — the stock of Jesse (Isaiah 11:1). Uzziah was doubtless regarded by the Philistines as a biting “serpent.” But though the effects of his bite have been got rid of, a more deadly viper, or “cockatrice” (literally, “viper’s offspring,” as Philistia would regard him), namely, Hezekiah awaits you (2 Kings 18:8).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 14:24-32.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 14:29

Of him — Most understand this of Uzziah, who did then much mischief, 2 Chronicles 26:3, 2 Chronicles 26:6. But he was dead thirty — two years before this time, and therefore their joy for his death was long since past. Others understand it of Ahaz: but he was so far from smiting them, that he was smitten by them. We may understand this of the royal race of Judah, who had been a terrible scourge to them, whose rod might be said to be broken, because that scepter was come into the hands of slothful princes. A serpent — From the root of David shall come Hezekiah, who, like a serpent, shall sting thee to death, as he did, 2 Kings 18:8.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 14:29

Rejoice not thou, all (r) Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent's root shall come forth an adder, and his fruit [shall be] a fiery flying serpent.

(r) He wills the Philistines not to rejoice because the Jews are diminished in their power, for their strength will be greater than it ever was.
