CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The nations - הארצות haratsoth, "the lands; "instead of this word, which destroys the sense, ten of Kennicott's and five of De Rossi's MSS. (one ancient) have here גוים goyim, "nations;" which is undoubtedly the true reading, being preserved also in the other copy; 2 Kings 19:17.

But you are less than nothing and your works are utterly worthless; whoever chooses you is detestable.
See, they are all false! Their deeds amount to nothing; their images are but wind and confusion.
