New International Version
18 “Of what value(A) is an idol(B) carved by a craftsman?
Or an image(C) that teaches lies?
For the one who makes it trusts in his own creation;
he makes idols that cannot speak.(D)
19 Woe to him who says to wood, ‘Come to life!’
Or to lifeless stone, ‘Wake up!’(E)
Can it give guidance?
It is covered with gold and silver;(F)
there is no breath in it.”(G)
