      1  God, in care of his people, will destroy the Ethiopians.
     7  An accession thereby shall be made to the church.
    
    
    VERSE 1
    - A.M. cir. 3290.  B.C. cir. 714.  Woe.
      Bp. Lowth renders, after Bochart, "Ho! to the land of the
      winged cymbal;" which he thinks is a periphrasis for the
      Egyptian sistrum; and consequently, that Egypt, "which
      borders on the rivers of Cush," is the country to which the
      prophecy is addressed.  If we translate "shadowing with
      wings," it may allude to the multitude of its vessels, whose
      sails may be represented under the notion of wings.
    
    - the land.
       * Isa 20:3-6; 30:2,3; 31:1
    - shadowing.
       * Ru 2:12 Ps 17:8; 36:7; 57:1; 61:4; 63:7; 91:4 Mt 23:37
    - which.
       * 2Ki 19:9 Eze 30:4,5 Zep 2:12; 3:10
    
    
    VERSE 2 
     - sendeth.
       * Isa 30:2-4 Eze 30:9
    - vessels.
      It is well known that the Egyptians commonly used on the Nile
      a light sort of ships or boats made of the papyrus.  See note
      on Ex 2:3.
    
    - to a nation.
       * :7
    - scattered and peeled.  or, outspread and polished.
      Or, as Bp. Lowth renders, "stretched out in length and
      smoothed."  Egypt, which is situated between 24 and 32 N.
      lat. and 30 and 33 E. long., being bounded on the south by
      Ethiopia, on the north by the Mediterranean, on the east by
      the mountains of Arabia, and on the west by those of Lybia,
      is one long vale, 750 miles in length, (through the middle of
      which runs the Nile,) in breadth from one to two or three
      day's journey, and even at the widest part of the Delta, from
      Pelusium to Alexandria, not above 250 miles broad.
    
    - to a people.
       * Ge 10:8,9 2Ch 12:2-4; 14:9; 16:8
    - Heb. Meted out and trodden down.  or, that meteth out and
      treadeth down.  Heb. of line, line, and treading under foot.
      This is an allusion to the frequent necessity of having
      recourse to mensuration in Egypt, in order to determine their
      boundaries, after the inundation of the Nile had smoothed
      their land and effaced their landmarks; and to their method
      of throwing seed upon the mud, when the waters had subsided,
      and treading it in by turning their cattle into the fields.
    
    - have spoiled.  or, despise.
       * Isa 19:5-7
    
    
    VERSE 3 
     - All ye.
       * Isa 1:2 Ps 49:1,2; 50:1 Jer 22:29 Mic 6:2
    - see ye.
       * Isa 5:26; 7:18; 13:2,4; 26:11 Am 3:6-8 Mic 6:9 Zec 9:14 Mt 13:9,16
    
    
    VERSE 4 
     - I will.
       * Isa 26:21 Ps 132:13,14 Ho 5:15
    - consider in my dwelling place.  or, regard my set dwelling.
       * :7; 12:6; 14:32; 31:9; 46:13 Joe 3:17
    - like a clear.
       * 2Sa 23:4 Ps 72:6
    - upon herbs.  or, after rain.

     - See on ch.
       * Isa 17:11 So 2:13,15 Eze 17:6-10
    
    VERSE 6
        * Isa 14:19; 34:1-7 Jer 7:33; 15:3 Eze 32:4-6; 39:17-20 Re 19:17,18
    
    
    VERSE 7 
     - shall the.
       * Isa 16:1; 23:17,18; 45:14 2Ch 32:23 Ps 68:29-31; 72:9-15 Zep 3:10
       * Mal 1:11 Mt 2:11 Ac 8:27,28
