virgin of Israel—the Israelite state heretofore unsubdued by foreigners. Compare Isaiah 23:12; Jeremiah 18:13; Jeremiah 31:4, Jeremiah 31:21; Lamentations 2:13; may be interpreted, Thou who wast once the "virgin daughter of Zion." Rather, "virgin" as applied to a state implies its beauty, and the delights on which it prides itself, its luxuries, power, and wealth [CALVIN].
no more rise—in the existing order of things: in the Messianic dispensation it is to rise again, according to many prophecies. Compare II Kings 6:23; II Kings 24:7, for the restricted sense of "no more."
forsaken upon her land—or, "prostrated upon," etc. (compare Ezekiel 29:5; Ezekiel 32:4) [MAURER].
