8 Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made:
8 Their land is full of idols; they bow down to the work of their hands, to what their fingers have made.
8 Their land is filled with idols; they bow down to the work of their hands, to what their own fingers have made.
8 And gods - gods of all sorts and sizes. These people make their own gods and worship what they make.
8 Their land is also full of idols; They worship the work of their own hands, That which their own fingers have made.
8 Their land is full of idols; the people worship things they have made with their own hands.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Isaiah 2:8
Commentary on Isaiah 2:1-9
(Read Isaiah 2:1-9)
The calling of the Gentiles, the spread of the gospel, and that far more extensive preaching of it yet to come, are foretold. Let Christians strengthen one another, and support one another. It is God who teaches his people, by his word and Spirit. Christ promotes peace, as well as holiness. If all men were real Christians, there could be no war; but nothing answering to these expressions has yet taken place on the earth. Whatever others do, let us walk in the light of this peace. Let us remember that when true religion flourishes, men delight in going up to the house of the Lord, and in urging others to accompany them. Those are in danger who please themselves with strangers to God; for we soon learn to follow the ways of persons whose company we keep. It is not having silver and gold, horses and chariots, that displeases God, but depending upon them, as if we could not be safe, and easy, and happy without them, and could not but be so with them. Sin is a disgrace to the poorest and the lowest. And though lands called Christian are not full of idols, in the literal sense, are they not full of idolized riches? and are not men so busy about their gains and indulgences, that the Lord, his truths, and precepts, are forgotten or despised?
