Isaiah 40:18–29

18  tTo whom then will ye liken God?

Or what likeness will ye compare unto him?

19  uThe workman melteth a graven image,

And xthe goldsmith yspreadeth it over with gold,

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?

22  ||It is he that sitteth upon bthe circle of the earth,

And the inhabitants thereof are cas grasshoppers;

dThat stretcheth out the heavens eas a curtain,

And spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:

23  fThat bringeth the princes to gnothing;

He maketh the judges of the earth as gvanity.

24  Yea, they shall not be planted;

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,

And ithe whirlwind shall take them away kas stubble.

25  lTo whom then will ye mliken me, or mshall I be equal? saith the Holy One.

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.

27  Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel,

rMy way is hid from the Lord,

And smy judgment is passed over from my God?

28  aHast thou not known? ahast thou not heard,

That the everlasting God, the Lord,

The Creator of the ends of the earth,

Fainteth not, neither is weary?

ptThere is no searching of his understanding.

29  He giveth power to the faint;

And to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
