Thus shall you say to them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth…
We have heard and read of the admired Oracles of the Gentiles, of Apollo at Delphos, of Jupiter Ammon in Egypt, and many more, too long to be named: but all of them are long since "perished from the earth, and from under these heavens"; we have heard of the names of many gods in former times, of great renown in these islands of the Gentiles, Jupiter, Mars, Apollo, Neptune, Juno, Vesta, Venus, Minerva, Diana, etc. All Europe swarmed with their temples and ceremonies, and yet now are they perished from the earth. Where is now Bel the god of Babylon, Nisroch, the god of Assyria, Baal and Ashtaroth, the gods of the Sidonians, Rimmon, the god of the Aramites? Where is now Dagon of the Philistines, Milcom of the Ammonites, Chemosh of Moab, and Tammuz of the Egyptians? Even these also, whose names we hear so frequently in Scripture, are perished with their very names, "from this earth, and under these heavens."
(J. Mede, B. D.)
