Isaiah 17:8

And he shall not look to the altars, the work of his hands, neither shall he respect that which his fingers have made, either the idol poles, or the incense altars.
Read Chapter 17

Eusebius of Caesarea

AD 339
By this it is clearly promised that the glory of Israel and all her riches will be taken away, and only a few, who like the few berries on an olive branch can be counted easily, will be left. These are the ones who believe in the Lord. Just after this there is a prophecy of the entire human race turning away from the error of idolatry and recognizing the God of Israel. - "Proof of the Gospel 2.3"

John of Damascus

AD 749
Those who trust in idols are foolish. Idols are their own creations, things they made with their own hands, but they turn around and say, “These idols are our creators.” How can these people say that something they made is their creator? Moreover, they guard their idols, so that they will not be stolen by thieves. What foolishness! If idols cannot guard and protect themselves, how can they guard and save others? - "Barlaam and Joseph 10"

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
