17 Everyone is dull-hearted, without knowledge;
Every metalsmith is put to shame by the carved image;
For his molded image is falsehood,
And there is no breath in them.
18 They are futile, a work of errors;
In the time of their punishment they shall perish.
19 The Portion of Jacob is not like them,
For He is the Maker of all things;
And Israel is the tribe of His inheritance.
The Lord of hosts is His name.
He who is the Portion of Jacob is not like these, for He is the Maker of all things, including the people of His inheritance— the Lord Almighty is His name.
The Portion of Jacob, the true God of Israel, is not like these handmade gods.
For He is the Maker of all and the One who formed and fashioned all things, and Israel is the tribe of His inheritance—The Lord of hosts is His name.
15 He has made the earth by His power;
He has established the world by His wisdom,
And stretched out the heaven by His understanding.
16 When He utters His voice—
There is a multitude of waters in the heavens:
“He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth;
He makes lightnings for the rain;
He brings the wind out of His treasuries.”
God made the earth by his power.
He founded the world by His wisdom and stretched out the heavens by His understanding.
He established the world by His wisdom and stretched out the heavens by His understanding.
‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’
‘Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’
‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and tell you and even show you great and mighty things, things which have been confined and hidden, which you do not know and understand and cannot distinguish.’
