And all your friends, those with whom you've done business since childhood, will go their own ways, turning a deaf ear to your cries.

Isaiah 47:15 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
47:15 Thus - Such comfortless and helpless creatures. They - Merchants who came from several countries to trade with Babylon. And the verse may be thus rendered; Thus (vain and unprofitable) shall they (thy sorcerers) with whom thou hast laboured be unto thee: (So here is only a transposition of words, than which nothing is more usual in scripture. Then follows another matter:) also thy merchants, or they with whom thou hast traded from thy youth, shall wander every one to his own quarter.
The merchants of the world will weep and mourn for her, for there is no one left to buy their goods.
They will roar like lions, like the strongest of lions. Growling, they will pounce on their victims and carry them off, and no one will be there to rescue them.
"From eternity to eternity I am God. No one can snatch anyone out of my hand. No one can undo what I have done."
They carry it around on their shoulders, and when they set it down, it stays there. It can't even move! And when someone prays to it, there is no answer. It can't rescue anyone from trouble.
All the advice you receive has made you tired. Where are all your astrologers, those stargazers who make predictions each month? Let them stand up and save you from what the future holds.
