CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
A tribute - Perhaps an allusion to some fresh arrangement of the tribute likely to have followed on the return of Xerxes from Greece.
Upon the isles of the sea - Cyprus, Aradus, the island of Tyre, Platea, etc., remained in the hands of the Persians after the victories of the Greeks, and may be the "isles" here intended.
From these the coastlands of the nations were separated into their lands, every one according to his language, according to their families, into their nations.
Then it will happen on that day that the Lord Will again recover the second time with His hand The remnant of His people, who will remain, From Assyria, Egypt, Pathros, Cush, Elam, Shinar, Hamath, And from the islands of the sea.
Therefore glorify the LORD in the east, The name of the LORD, the God of Israel, In the coastlands of the sea.
