The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleIsaiah 41:11
Behold, all they that were incensed against thee…
rejecting their idols, and idol worship; for receiving the Gospel, and
shall be ashamed and confounded;
their idols not being able to help
them, nor they to defend the worship of them: the same is said with
respect to Christ, (Isaiah 45:24) :
they shall be as nothing, and they that strive with thee shall perish;
or, "the men of thy strife" F15; all shall come to nothing, and utterly
perish, as to their persons, substance, power, and dignity; as did the
Roman emperors, the persecutors of God's people.
F15 (Kbyr yvna) "viri litis tuae", Montanus; "rixae tuae", Vatablus.
