Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 23:17

_ _ visit — not in wrath, but mercy.

_ _ hire — image from a harlot: her gains by commerce. After the Babylonian dynasty was ended, Tyre was rebuilt; also, again, after the destruction under Alexander.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 23:15-18.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 23:17

Visit — In mercy. Her hire — The Hebrew word properly signifies, the hire of an harlot. Fornication — Shall trade promiscuously with people of all nations, as harlots entertain all comers.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 23:17

And it shall come to pass after the end of seventy years, that the LORD will visit Tyre, and she shall turn to her (y) hire, and shall play the harlot with all the kingdoms of the world upon the face of the earth.

(y) Though she has been chastised by the Lord, yet she will return to her old wicked practises and for gain will give herself to all men's lusts like a harlot.
