New International Version
All the makers of idols will be put to shame and disgraced; they will go off into disgrace together.
King James Bible
They shall be ashamed, and also confounded, all of them: they shall go to confusion together that are makers of idols.
Darby Bible Translation
They shall be ashamed, and also confounded, all of them; they shall go away in confusion together, the makers of idols.
World English Bible
They will be disappointed, yes, confounded, all of them. Those who are makers of idols will go into confusion together.
Young's Literal Translation
They have been ashamed, And they have even blushed -- all of them, Together gone in confusion have those carving images.
Isaiah 45:16 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
They shall be ashamed "They are ashamed" - The reader cannot but observe the sudden transition from the solemn adoration of the secret and mysterious nature of God's counsels in regard to his people, to the spirited denunciation of the confusion of idolaters, and the final destruction of idolatry; contrasted with the salvation of Israel, not from temporal captivity, but the eternal salvation by the Messiah, strongly marked by the repetition and augmentation of the phrase, to the ages of eternity. But there is not only a sudden change in the sentiment, the change is equally observable in the construction of the sentences; which from the usual short measure, runs out at once into two distichs of the longer sort of verse.

The version of the Septuagint happily supplies the word that is lost: οἱ αντικειμενοι αυτῳ, "his adversaries," the original word was צריו tsaraiv. - L.

I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth; I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye Me in vain: I the Lord speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.'--ISAIAH xlv, 15,19.

But those who trust in idols, who say to images, 'You are our gods,' will be turned back in utter shame.
All who make idols are nothing, and the things they treasure are worthless. Those who would speak up for them are blind; they are ignorant, to their own shame.
People who do that will be put to shame; such craftsmen are only human beings. Let them all come together and take their stand; they will be brought down to terror and shame.
Then Moab will be ashamed of Chemosh, as Israel was ashamed when they trusted in Bethel.
