Turn away from idols (Isa 31:6-31:7)

“Turn back to him

Whom you have deeply betrayed!

O people of Israel!

On that day

All of you shall throw away

Your idols of silver,

Your idols of gold,

That your hands have sinfully made for you.”

Isaiah warns that they have to turn back to Yahweh, whom they have betrayed. They have to throw away their silver and gold idols that they have sinfully made for themselves. Once again, this is an indication that idolatry may have been taking place in Jerusalem.
