Reformation Study Bible – Isa 13:17
Isa 13:17

13:17 Medes. These were inhabitants of the Zagros Mountains, east of Babylon and Assyria. They were never subjugated by Assyria and joined Babylon in the conquest of Assyria (612–609 b.c.). For the dating of this prophecy it is significant that Persia, which conquered Media in 549 b.c., is not mentioned.
