Isaiah 44:18-20 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

18 People like that don’t know what they are doing! They don’t understand. It is as if they have mud in their eyes so they cannot see. Their minds cannot understand. 19 They don’t realize what they are doing. They aren’t smart enough to think, “I burned half of the wood in the fire. I used the hot coals to bake my bread and cook the meat I ate. And I used the wood that was left to make this terrible thing. I am worshiping a block of wood!”

20 Someone like that is deceived. They don’t know what they are doing.[a] They cannot save themselves, and they will not admit, “This statue I am holding is a lie!”


  1. Isaiah 44:20 They … doing Literally, “They eat ashes.”
