Read: 2 Kings 19; Psalms 46, 80, 135
Marked: Psalms 135:15-18, The idols of the nations [are] silver and gold, The work of men’s hands. They have mouths, but they do not speak; Eyes they have, but they do not see; They have ears, but they do not hear; Nor is there [any] breath in their mouths. 18 Those who make them are like them; [So is] everyone who trusts in them.
We can put our faith, hope, and trust in many idols whether we realize it or not. It may be possessions, power, wealth, even ourselves.
Those that came against Israel put their hope in their false gods and idols. But in coming against Israel they were going against the God of Israel; the One who had chosen Jacob for Himself for His special treasure (V4). He is above all gods. He had sent signs and wonders in the midst of Egypt and defeated many other nations.
All other gods will come to nothing, but THE God endures forever and His fame throughout all generations (V13). These gods, that many trust in, are constructs, they have mouths, but don’t speak, eyes and ears, but don’t see or hear; they don’t live. Those that put their faith in them are like them (V15-18).
