Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 46:6

_ _ (Isaiah 40:19, Isaiah 40:20; Isaiah 41:7.) They lavish gold out of their purses and spare no expense for their idol. Their profuseness shames the niggardliness of professors who worship God with what cost them nothing. Sin is always a costly service.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 46:5-13.
