14 Therefore behold, I will again do a marvelous work in this people, even a marvelous work, and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall [a]perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.
15 Woe unto them that [b]seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord: for their works are in darkness, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?
16 Your turning of devices shall it not be esteemed [c]as the potter’s clay? for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or the thing formed, say of him that fashioned it, He had none understanding?
Isaiah 29:14Meaning, that where as God is not worshipped according to his word, both magistrates and ministers are but fools and without understanding.
Isaiah 29:15This is spoken of them which in heart despised God’s word, and mocked at the admonitions, but outwardly bare a good face.
Isaiah 29:16For all your craft saith the Lord, you cannot be able to escape mine hands no more than the clay, that is in the potter’s hands, hath power to deliver itself.
