Isaiah 44:17-19 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

17 He makes a god or his idol with the rest of it.
He bows down to it and worships;
he prays to it, “Save me, for you are my god.”
18 Such people[a] do not comprehend
and cannot understand,
for he has shut their eyes[b] so they cannot see,
and their minds so they cannot understand.
19 No one comes to his senses;[c]
no one has the perception or insight to say,
“I burned half of it in the fire,
I also baked bread on its coals,
I roasted meat and ate.
Should I make something detestable with the rest of it?
Should I bow down to a block of wood?”


  1. 44:18 Lit They
  2. 44:18 Or for their eyes are shut
  3. 44:19 Lit No one returns to his heart
