Isaiah 13:11 Parallel
Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

And I will punish the world - By the 'world' here is evidently meant the Babylonian empire, in the same way as 'all the world' in Luke 2:1, means Judea; and in Acts 11:28, means the Roman empire. Babylonia, or Chaldea, was the most mighty empire then on earth, and might be said to comprehend the whole world.

And I will cause the arrogancy - This was the prevailing sin of Babylon, and it was on account of this pride mainly that it was overthrown (see the notes at Isaiah 14; notes at Isaiah 47:1-7; compare Daniel 4:22, Daniel 4:30).

Through the folly and weakness of Belshazzar, the grandson
