Isaiah 47:10

10 You have trusted in your wickedness and have said, ‘No one sees me.’ Your wisdom and knowledge mislead you when you say to yourself, ‘I am, and there is none besides me.’

Read Isaiah 47:10 Using Other Translations

For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness: thou hast said, None seeth me. Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me.
You felt secure in your wickedness, you said, "No one sees me"; your wisdom and your knowledge led you astray, and you said in your heart, "I am, and there is no one besides me."
“You felt secure in your wickedness. ‘No one sees me,’ you said. But your ‘wisdom’ and ‘knowledge’ have led you astray, and you said, ‘I am the only one, and there is no other.’

What does Isaiah 47:10 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Isaiah 47:10

For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness
In wealth and power wickedly obtained; in political schemes wickedly contrived; in her ambition and pride, tyranny and cruelty; and especially in her wicked arts of astrology, divination, and magic: thou hast said, none seeth me;
lay her schemes of policy, which she thought so deeply laid, as not to be discovered; perform her magic arts, which were secretly done, and other her wicked actions done in the dark; but nothing can be hid from the omniscient God: thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee:
her high opinion of her own wisdom and knowledge in political affairs, or in magic arts, deceived her, and turned her from right to wrong ways, which issued in her ruin. This rightly describes the Jesuits, and other emissaries of the church of Rome, who trust in their wickedness, their craft and cunning, which none can penetrate into; but there is an all seeing eye upon them, which discovers their intrigues, blasts their designs, and brings them into confusion: and thou hast said in thine heart, I am, and none else besides me;
none so wise and knowing as myself. This is what the oracle said of the Chaldeans F14,

``the Chaldeans and the Hebrews are the only wise.''
This is repeated, to observe the haughty and insolent boasts of themselves.

F14 Apud Euseb. Praepar. Evang. l. 9. c. 10. p. 413.
