New Defender's Study Bible Notes
44:10 Who hath formed a god. Isaiah 44:9-20 constitutes a classic example of divine irony. The folly of constructing a “god” to worship out of the same tree that provides firewood would seem to be so obvious that no person in his right mind would consider such a thing. Yet millions of people in every age—including the present scientific age—have been idolaters. Even more inscrutable than the minds of those who worship objects made with their own hands are those who worship some intangible construct of reality devised by humanistic philosophers—or even of their own imaginations.
