CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
41:29 Behold - This is the conclusion of the dispute, but under these he comprehends all images whatsoever. Wind - Empty and unsatisfying things. Confusion - Confused and useless things, like that rude heap in the beginning of God's creation, of which this very word is used, Gen 1:2.
What a precious promise to the young Christian, or to the old Christian attacked by lowness of spirits and distress of mind!

How foolish are those who manufacture idols. These prized objects are really worthless. The people who worship idols don't know this, so they are all put to shame.
