NET © Notes

tn Heb “[with] the chariots of men, horsemen.”

sn A distant region in the direction of Mesopotamia; see Amos 1:5; 9:7.

tn Heb “Kir uncovers” (so NAB, NIV).

sn The Elamites and men of Kir may here symbolize a fierce army from a distant land. If this oracle anticipates a Babylonian conquest of the city (see 39:5-7), then the Elamites and men of Kir are perhaps viewed here as mercenaries in the Babylonian army. See J. N. Oswalt, Isaiah (NICOT), 1:410.
