And I used the wood that was left to make this hateful thing.

I am worshiping a block of wood!”

I shall bow down to a block of wood!”

Isaiah 44:19 — New International Reader’s Version (1998) (NIrV)

out of the wood that’s left over?

Should I bow down to a block of wood?

The Lord would hate that.”
