“All idolaters will prove to be stupid and ignorant.
Every goldsmith will be disgraced by the idol he made.
For the image he forges is merely a sham.
There is no breath in any of those idols.”
God would punish Babylon for its destruction of the temple. Idols would be destroyed, v. 18, and the Lord would be revealed as the one who rules over all, v. 19.
What idols are we tempted to make or worship today? How will these bring us disgrace?
