Isaiah 44:9

Context

44:9 All who form idols are nothing;

the things in which they delight are worthless.

Their witnesses cannot see;

they recognize nothing, so they are put to shame.

Isaiah 44:11

Context

44:11 Look, all his associates 1  will be put to shame;

the craftsmen are mere humans. 2 

Let them all assemble and take their stand!

They will panic and be put to shame.

1 tn The pronoun “his” probably refers to the one who forms/casts an idol (v. 10), in which case it refers to the craftsman’s associates in the idol-manufacturing guild.

2 sn The point seems to be this: If the idols are the mere products of human hands, then those who trust in them will be disappointed, for man-made gods are incapable of helping their “creators.”
