Isaiah 44:17-19 New Century Version (NCV)

17 But he makes a statue from the wood that is left and calls it his god.
    He bows down to it and worships it.
He prays to it and says,
    “You are my god. Save me!”
18 Those people don’t know what they are doing. They don’t understand!
    It is as if their eyes are covered so they can’t see.
    Their minds don’t understand.
19 They have not thought about these things;
    they don’t understand.
They have never thought to themselves,
    “I burned half of the wood in the fire
    and used the hot coals to bake my bread.
    I cooked and ate my meat.
And I used the wood that was left to make this hateful thing.
    I am worshiping a block of wood!”

Isaiah 44:17-19 New International Version (NIV)

17 From the rest he makes a god, his idol;
    he bows down to it and worships.
He prays to it and says,
    “Save me! You are my god!”
18 They know nothing, they understand nothing;
    their eyes are plastered over so they cannot see,
    and their minds closed so they cannot understand.
19 No one stops to think,
    no one has the knowledge or understanding to say,
“Half of it I used for fuel;
    I even baked bread over its coals,
    I roasted meat and I ate.
Shall I make a detestable thing from what is left?
    Shall I bow down to a block of wood?”
