All who worship images are put to shame, those who boast in idols-- worship him, all you gods!

Psalm 97:7 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Confounded be fell they - Rather, They shall be confounded that boast themselves in idols. There is a remarkable play on the letters here, המתהללים hammithhalelim, who move like madmen; referring to the violent gestures practiced in idolatrous rites.

The Chaldee says: "All nations who worship idols shall adore him."

Messiah Despised, and Rejected of Men
And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, "Let all God's angels worship him."
"You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.
When the people saw him, they praised their god, saying, "Our god has delivered our enemy into our hands, the one who laid waste our land and multiplied our slain."
They angered him with their high places; they aroused his jealousy with their idols.
They worshiped their idols, which became a snare to them.
Of David. I will praise you, LORD, with all my heart; before the "gods" I will sing your praise.
But those who trust in idols, who say to images, 'You are our gods,' will be turned back in utter shame.
