Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 18:14

_ _ Direct address to Babylon.

_ _ the fruits that thy soul lusted afterGreek, “thy autumn-ripe fruits of the lust (eager desire) of the soul.”

_ _ daintyGreek, “fat”: “sumptuous” in food.

_ _ goodly — “splendid,” “bright,” in dress and equipage.

_ _ departed — supported by none of our manuscripts. But A, B, C, Vulgate, Syriac, and Coptic read, “perished.”

_ _ thou shalt — A, C, Vulgate, and Syriac read, “They (men) shall no more find them at all.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 18:9-24.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 18:14

And the fruits — From what was imported they proceed to the domestic delicates of Rome; none of which is in greater request there, than the particular sort which is here mentioned. The word properly signifies, pears, peaches, nectarines, and all of the apple and plum kinds. And all things that are dainty — To the taste. And splendid — To the sight; as clothes, buildings, furniture.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Revelation 18:14

(10) And the (f) fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.

(10) An apostrophe, or turning of the speech by imitation, used for more vehemence, as if those merchants, as mourners, should in passionate speech speak to Babylon, though now utterly fallen and overthrown; (Isaiah 13:9) and in many other places.

(f) By this is meant that season which is before the fall of the leaf, at which time fruit ripens, and the word signifies such fruits as are longed for.
