Babylon’s Idols and the True God

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 46:1 -

Bel has bowed down, Nebo stoops over;

Their images are on the beasts and the cattle.

The things [fn]that you carry are burdensome,

A load for the weary beast.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 46:2 -

They stooped over, they have bowed down together;

They could not rescue the load,

But [fn]have themselves gone into captivity.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 46:3 -

“Hear Me, O house of Jacob,

And all the remnant of the house of Israel,

You who have been burdening Me from [fn]birth

And have been carried from the womb;

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 46:4 -

Even to your old age [fn]I will be the same,

And even to your [fn]graying years I will bear you!

I have [fn]done it, and I will carry you;

And I will bear you, and I will rescue you.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 46:5 -

“To whom would you liken Me

And make Me equal and compare Me,

That we would be alike?

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 46:6 -

“Those who lavish gold from the purse

And weigh silver on the scale,

They hire a goldsmith, and he makes it into a god;

They fall down, indeed they worship it.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 46:7 -

“They carry it upon the shoulder and bear it;

They set it in its place, and it stands there.

It does not move from its place.

Though one may cry to it, it cannot answer;

It cannot save him from his distress.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 46:8 -

“Remember this, and be [fn]assured;

Cause it to return to your heart, you transgressors.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 46:9 -

“Remember the former things long past,

For I am God, and there is no other;

I am God, and there is no one like Me,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 46:10 -

Declaring the end from the beginning,

And from ancient times things which have not been done,

Saying, ‘My counsel will be established,

And I will accomplish all My good pleasure’,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 46:11 -

Calling a bird of prey from the east,

The man of [fn]My counsel from a far country.

Truly I have spoken; truly I will bring it to pass.

I have formed it, surely I will do it.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 46:12 -

“Hear Me, you stubborn of heart,

Who are far from righteousness.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 46:13 -

“I bring near My righteousness, it is not far off;

And My salvation will not delay.

And I will grant salvation in Zion,

And My glory for Israel.
