18 tTo whom then will ye liken God?
Or what likeness will ye compare unto him?
19 uThe workman melteth a graven image,
And casteth silver chains.
20 He that †is so impoverished that he hath no oblation chooseth a tree that will not rot;
He seeketh unto him a cunning workman
To prepare a graven image, zthat shall not be moved.
21 aHave ye not known? have ye not heard?
Hath it not been told you from the beginning?
aHave ye not understood from the foundations of the earth?
And the inhabitants thereof are cas grasshoppers;
And spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:
He maketh the judges of the earth as gvanity.
Yea, they shall not be sown:
Yea, their hstock shall not take root in the earth:
And he shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither,
26 mmLift up your eyes on high,
And behold who hath created these things,
nThat bringeth out their host by number:
oHe calleth them all by names
By pthe greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power;
qNot one faileth.
rMy way is hid from the Lord,
And smy judgment is passed over from my God?
That the everlasting God, the Lord,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Fainteth not, neither is weary?
And to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
