Gaebelein's Annotated Bible

Isaiah 46

Verses 1-13

CHAPTER 46

1. Babylon Is to Fall The Babylonian idols carried by the beasts (Isaiah 46:1-2 ) 2. How Jehovah carries His people (Isaiah 46:3-4 ) 3. The divine reproach (Isaiah 46:5-7 ) 4. A ravenous bird (Cyrus) to come from the east (Isaiah 46:8-11 ) 5. Salvation in Zion (Isaiah 46:12-13 ) The opening verses are comforting. The helplessness of the Babylonian idols is described. They have to be carried. They cannot deliver out of captivity, for they themselves have gone in to captivity. But Jehovah carries His people from birth to old age. The last verse takes us beyond the fall of the Babylon of the past. When the final Babylon described in Revelation is accomplished then it will be true “I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory.”
