Chapter 14 was more than Isaiah predicting the consequences of this first captivity, this first Diaspora of the Jews.Isaiah writes, as do most all the prophets, with a dual meaning.

The king of Babylon, in this first forced removal of the Jews from the promised land, would be followed by another.
Western Europe, under Rome, is also Babylon.
So the prophecy points to two historical references, two men.

I will bring forth and show us what shall happen: [Isa. 41:22]

1 For the LORD will have mercy, (in 539BC and again, in 1948 AD: [Zech 8:1-3]), on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel (the home of the chosen people), and set them in their own land: and the (Christian: [Zech 8:20-22, Is 60:10-11]) strangers shall be joined with them (in Judeo/Christianity: [Zech 8:23), and they, (Christians) shall cleave to the house of Jacob, (recognizing them as the lost brothers of Ephraim).

2 And the people (of Christianity) shall take them, and bring them to their place: and the house of (the State of) Israel shall possess them in the land (promised) of the LORD for servants (to God) and handmaids (to his work):
and they shall take them, (pagan Rome), captives (of the Lord), whose captives they were (in diaspora); and they shall rule over their oppressors (the Roman pagans).

3 And it shall come to pass in the day that the LORD shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve,

4 That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, (the golden head: [Dan 2:32, 38] of the economic beast: [Dan 3:1]) and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased: [Dan 2:38]!

THE PROVERB:

5 The LORD hath broken the (religious) staff of the wicked (paganism), and the (the political) sceptre of the rulers.

6 He, (this theo-political paganism), who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he (the seven headed beast) that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hindereth: [Rev 6:12-17].

7 The whole (converted) earth is at rest, and (the discourse of pagan Gods) is quiet: (the world of monotheists), they break forth into singing.

8 Yea, the fir trees rejoice at thee, and the cedars of Lebanon, saying, Since thou, (monotheism), art laid down, no feller is come up against us.

9 Hell from beneath is moved for thee, (paganism), to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the (historical) chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the (pagan) kings of the nations.

10 All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou, (paganism), also become weak as we? art thou, (paganism), become like unto us?

11 Thy (pagan) pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.

12 How art thou (pagan Babylon), fallen from ([Hebrew: shamayim = astrologer's heaven] astrological) heaven: ([Hebrew: O'shining one]), O Lucifer, (son of the dawn), SON OF (Istar) the morning (star, Venus)! how art thou, (astrological paganism), cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations (who did worship the sun, the moon, and the stars:[Deut 4:19]!

shamayim, shameh, shaw-mah'-yim, shaw-meh'
The second form being dual of an unused singular; from an unused root meaning to be lofty; the sky (as aloft; the dual perhaps alluding to the visible arch in which the clouds move, as well as to the higher ether where the celestial bodies revolve): air, astrologer, heaven (-s)

shachar, shakh'-ar: From H7836 ; dawn (literally, figuratively or adverbially): day (-spring), early, light, morning, whence riseth.

heylel, hay-lale': From H1984 (in the sense of brightness); the morning star:

13 For thou, (O Babylonia), hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation: [Ps 82:1], in the sides of the north:

14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High, (I will bring forth and show us what shall happen: [Isa. 41:22]).

[Isa. 41:22 Let them, (the astrologer), bring them forth, (rational, historically accurate interpretations), and show us what shall happen (henceforth):]

15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit, (the abyss: [Rev 20:1-3]).

16 They that see thee, (the great empire of Babylon), shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;

17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners? 18 All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house.

19 But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet.

20 Thou, (pagan Astrology), shalt not be joined with them in burial, because thou hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned.

21 Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.

22 For I will rise up against them, [Rev 12:4], saith the LORD of hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, saith the LORD.

23 I will also make it a possession for the bittern, and pools of water: and I will sweep it with the besom of destruction, saith the LORD of hosts.

24 The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand:

25 That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders.

26 This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations.

27 For the LORD of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?

28 In the year that king Ahaz died was this burden.

29 Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod (of astrology) of him, (the wisdom of Chaldea), that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent's root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent.

cockatrice noun
another term for basilisk (sense 1).
Heraldry a mythical animal depicted as a two-legged dragon (or wyvern) with a cock's head.

basilisk noun
a mythical reptile with a lethal gaze or breath, hatched by a serpent from a cock's egg.
basilisk 2
Heraldry another term for cockatrice.
little king, serpent, from basileus king.

30 And the firstborn of the poor shall feed, and the needy shall lie down in safety: and I will kill thy root with famine, and he shall slay thy remnant.

31 Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou, whole Palestina, art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone in his appointed times.

32 What shall one then answer the messengers of the nation? That the LORD hath founded Zion [Zech8:1-3], and the poor of his people shall trust in it.
