will I not, as I have done to Samaria and her Worthless Ones,
do also to Jerusalem and her idols? Bible

“Worthless Ones.” The Hebrew text has the word 'eliyl (#0457 אֱלִיל), “worthless ones” or “worthless things” a sarcastic name for “idols” (see commentary on Habakkuk 2:18, “worthless things”). This is contrasted with the word “idol” (or “image”) at the end of the verse.
