Yeshayahu Forty-Four: Idols

This chapter goes on a rant against idolatry, and the creation of idols in particular. “Those who form idols are all of them vanity, and their treasures are of no avail, and they are their witnesses; they neither see nor hear, nor do they know, so that they be ashamed (Isaiah 44:9).” Anyone who knows someone who creates idols should be embarrassed and not associate with them. Several professions are now mentioned: ironsmiths and carpenters. But instead of embracing idolatry, the people are charged with remembering God, and all that He has done for us.
