Reformation Study Bible – Isa 14:18
Isa 14:18

14:18 the kings . . . lie in glory. The satirical contrast introduced in v. 9 is taken up again. The conquered kings are pictured in honored rest, while proud Babylon is thrown out like unhealthy refuse. To be deprived of a proper burial was regarded as a great misfortune.
