G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible
Isaiah 46

 

 

Verses 1-13

This chapter and the next contain the prophecy of the fall of Babylon. This one describes the failure of the gods. It opens with a graphic picture of the idols being hurried away for safety, carried on beasts of burden. In immediate contrast the prophet describes Jehovah as carrying His people, and the contrast is endorsed as He inquires, "To whom will ye liken Me, and make Me equal, and compare Me, that we may be like?" Thus He sets forth the fundamental difference between false gods and the true. They have to be 'carried. He carries. On the basis of this the prophet appeals to the transgressors to remember it; and to the stout-hearted, that is to the enemies of His people, to hearken, and to understand that He will yet be the Deliverer of His own.
