Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 15:9

_ _ Dimon — same as Dibon (Isaiah 15:2). Its waters are the Arnon.

_ _ full of blood — The slain of Moab shall be so many.

_ _ bring more — fresh calamities, namely, the “lions” afterwards mentioned (2 Kings 17:25; Jeremiah 5:6; Jeremiah 15:3). Vitringa understands Nebuchadnezzar as meant by “the lion”; but it is plural, “lions.” The “more,” or in Hebrew, “additions,” he explains of the addition made to the waters of Dimon by the streams of blood of the slain.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 15:6-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 15:9

More — More than hath been already mentioned. Lions — God shall send lions to find out those that escape the fury of men.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 15:9

For the waters of Dimon shall be full (k) of blood: for I will bring more upon Dimon, lions (l) upon him that escapeth of Moab, and upon the remnant of the land.

(k) Of them who are slain.

(l) So that by no means would they escape the hand of God: thus will God punish the enemies of his Church.
