vs. 10 The stars of heaven and their constellations will not show their light. The rising sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light. vs. 13 Therefore, I will make the heavens tremble; and the earth will shake from its place at the wrath of the LORD Almighty, in the day of his burning anger.
In Psalm 147:4, the Scripture says He numbers the stars, and calls them each by name. Certainly, then, He can tell them to shut off their light. The Creator of moon, sun and stars has the power to cancel their light-giving abilities. Isaiah 13 is a prophecy against Babylon’s wealth, power and wickedness, but it is also a declaration of God’s Sovereignty. The LORD God Creator has authority over all He has created. He is in control. He is the Boss.
