Isaiah 40:17-2017 a All the nations are as nothing before him,
they are accounted by him as less than nothing and emptiness.
18 b To whom then will you liken God,
c or what likeness compare with him?
19 d An idol! A craftsman casts it,
and a goldsmith overlays it with gold
and casts for it silver chains.
20 e He who is too impoverished for an offering
chooses wood ▼
▼Or He chooses valuable woodthat will not rot;
he seeks out a skillful craftsman
to set up an idol that will not move.
