Lamentations 5:20 Wherefore dost thou forget us for ever, and forsake us so long time?
And the Lord have removed men far away.--The words point to the policy of deportation adopted by the Assyrian kings. From the first hour of Isaiah's call the thought of an exile and a return from exile was the key-note of his teaching, and of that thought thus given in germ, his whole after-work was but a development, the horizon of his vision expanding and taking in the form of another empire than the Assyrian as the instrument of punishment.
And there be a great forsaking.--Better, great shall be the deserted space. (Comp. Isaiah 5:9; Isaiah 7:22-23.) The words may have connected themselves in Isaiah's thoughts with what he had heard before from the lips of Micah (Jeremiah 26:18; Micah 3:12).Verse 12. - And the Lord have removed men far away. The Assyrian and Babylonian policy of deportation is pointed at. Pul had attacked the kingdom of Israel ten or twelve years before Uzziah's death, and had perhaps made the Assyrian policy known, though he had allowed himself to be bought off (2 Kings 15:19, 20). And there be a great forsaking; rather, and the desolation be great; i.e. till a great portion of Judah be depopulated.
