Isaiah 47:12-13

Context

and your many incantations,

which you have faithfully recited 3  since your youth!

Maybe you will be successful 4 

maybe you will scare away disaster. 5 

47:13 You are tired out from listening to so much advice. 6 

Let them take their stand –

the ones who see omens in the sky,

who gaze at the stars,

who make monthly predictions –

let them rescue you from the disaster that is about to overtake you! 7
