SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:8 Además está su tierra llena de ídolos, y a la obra de sus manos se han arrodillado, a lo que fabricaron sus dedos.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Isaiah 2:8 Verse 8. Their land also is full of idols "And his land is filled with idols"] Uzziah and Fotham are both said, 2 Kings xv. 3, 4, 34, 35, "to have done that which was right in the sight of the Lord;" that is, to have adhered to and maintained the legal worship of God, in opposition to idolatry and all irregular worship; for to this sense the meaning of that phrase is commonly to be restrained; "save that the high places were not removed where the people still sacrificed and burned incense." There was hardly any time when they were quite free from this irregular and unlawful practice, which they seem to have looked upon as very consistent with the true worship of God; and which seems in some measure to have been tolerated, while the tabernacle was removed from place to place, and before the temple was built. Even after the conversion of Manasseh, when he had removed the strange gods, commanded Judah to serve JEHOVAH the God of Israel, it is added, "Nevertheless the people did sacrifice still on the high places, yet unto JEHOVAH their God only," 2 Chron. xxxiii. 17.
The worshipping on the high places therefore does not necessarily imply idolatry; and from what is said of these two kings, Uzziah and Jotham, we may presume that the public exercise of idolatrous worship was not permitted in their time. The idols therefore here spoken of must have been such as were designed for a private and secret use. Such probably were the teraphim so often mentioned in Scripture; a kind of household gods, of human form, as it should seem, (see 1 Sam. xix. 13, and compare Gen. xxxi. 34,) of different magnitude, used for idolatrous and superstitious purposes, particularly for divination, and as oracles, which they consulted for direction in their affairs.
Matthew Henry Commentary The conversion of the Gentiles, Description of the sinfulness of Israel. (Is. 2:1-9) The awful punishment of unbelievers. (Is. 2:10-22)
Is. 2:1-9 The calling of the Gentiles, the spread of the gospel, an that far more extensive preaching of it yet to come, are foretold. Le 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 n war; but nothing answering to these expressions has yet taken place of the earth. Whatever others do, let us walk in the light of this peace Let us remember that when true religion flourishes, men delight i going up to the house of the Lord, and in urging others to accompan 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 displease God, but depending upon them, as if we could not be safe, and easy, an happy without them, and could not but be so with them. Sin is disgrace to the poorest and the lowest. And though lands calle Christian are not full of idols, in the literal sense, are they no full of idolized riches? and are not men so busy about their gains an indulgences, that the Lord, his truths, and precepts, are forgotten of despised?
Is. 2:10-22 The taking of Jerusalem by the Chaldeans seems first mean here, when idolatry among the Jews was done away; but our thoughts ar led forward to the destruction of all the enemies of Christ. It is folly for those who are pursued by the wrath of God, to think to hid or shelter themselves from it. The shaking of the earth will be terrible to those who set their affections on things of the earth Men's haughtiness will be brought down, either by the grace of God convincing them of the evil of pride, or by the providence of God depriving them of all the things they were proud of. The day of the Lord shall be upon those things in which they put their confidence Those who will not be reasoned out of their sins, sooner or later shal be frightened out of them. Covetous men make money their god; but the time will come when they will feel it as much their burden. This whol passage may be applied to the case of an awakened sinner, ready to leave all that his soul may be saved. The Jews were prone to rely of their heathen neighbours; but they are here called upon to cease from depending on mortal man. We are all prone to the same sin. Then let no man be your fear, let not him be your hope; but let your hope be in the Lord your God. Let us make this our great concern __________________________________________________________________
