|Overview - Isaiah 46|
|1||The idols of Babylon could not save themselves.|
|3||God saves his people to the end.|
|5||Idols are not comparable to God for power,|

Isaiah 46:1 (King James Version)
Bel boweth down, Nebo stoopeth, their idols were upon the beasts, and upon the cattle: your carriages were heavy loaden; they are a burden to the weary beast.
- Bel, called Belus by the Greek and Roman writers, is the same as Baal; and Nebo is interpreted by Castell and Norberg of Mercury; the two principal idols of Babylon. When that city was taken by the Persians, these images were carried in triumph.
