Isaiah 221 The prophet laments the invasion of Jewry.8 He reproves their human wisdom and worldly joy.15 He prophesies Shebna's deprivation,20 and the substitution of Eliakim, prefiguring the kingdom of Christ. A.M. cir. 3292. B.C. cir. 712. the valley.Jerusalem being situated in the midst of surrounding hills, and the seat of Divine revelation, is here termed "the valley of vision." This prophecy foretells the invasion of Jerusalem by the Assyrians under Sennacherib; and probably also, by the Chaldeans under Nebuchadnezzar. Ps 125:2; Jer 21:13of vision.1Sa 3:1; Ps 147:19,20; Pr 29:18; Mic 3:6; Ro 3:2; 9:4,5What.Ge 21:17; Jud 18:23; 1Sa 11:5; 2Sa 14:5; 2Ki 6:28; Ps 114:5that thou.The eastern houses are built with a court within, into which chiefly the windows open; those that open to the street being so obstructed with lattice work, that no one can see through them. Whenever, therefore, any thing is to be seen or heard in the streets, any public spectacle, or any alarm, everyone immediately goes up to the house-top to satisfy his curiosity. Hence all the people running to the top of their houses, gives a lively image of a sudden general alarm. 15:3; De 22:8; Jer 48:38 that art.12,13; 23:7; 32:13; Am 6:3-6thy slain.37:33,36; Jer 14:18; 38:2; 52:6; La 2:20; 4:9,10 thy rulers.3:1-8; 2Ki 25:4-7,18-21; Jer 39:4-7; 52:24-27by the archers.

Lowth, called Naksi Rustam, which give a clear idea of Shebna's pompous design for his sepulchre. They consist of several sepulchres, each of them hewn in a high rock near the top. The front of the rock to the valley below is adorned with carved work in relief, being the outside of the sepulchre. Some of these sepulchres are about thirty feet in the perpendicular from the valley, which is itself raised perhaps about half as much by the accumulation of the earth since they were made. 14:18; 2Sa 18:18; 2Ch 16:14; Job 3:14; Mt 27:60as he. or, O he. will carry, etc. or, who covered thee with an excellentcovering, and clothed thee gorgeously, shall surely violently turn, etc. 18a mighty captivity.

To comprehend how the key could be borne on the shoulder, it will be sufficient to observe, that the ancient keys were of considerable magnitude, and much bent.
