Isaiah 40:19-20 English Standard Version Anglicised (ESVUK)

19 An idol! A craftsman casts it,
    and a goldsmith overlays it with gold
    and casts for it silver chains.
20 He who is too impoverished for an offering
    chooses wood[a] that will not rot;
he seeks out a skilful craftsman
    to set up an idol that will not move.

Isaiah 41:6-7 English Standard Version Anglicised (ESVUK)

Everyone helps his neighbour
    and says to his brother, “Be strong!”
The craftsman strengthens the goldsmith,
    and he who smooths with the hammer him who strikes the anvil,
saying of the soldering, “It is good”;
    and they strengthen it with nails so that it cannot be moved.

Isaiah 46:6-7 English Standard Version Anglicised (ESVUK)

Those who lavish gold from the purse,
    and weigh out silver in the scales,
hire a goldsmith, and he makes it into a god;
    then they fall down and worship!
They lift it to their shoulders, they carry it,
    they set it in its place, and it stands there;
    it cannot move from its place.
If one cries to it, it does not answer
    or save him from his trouble.

Habakkuk 2:18 English Standard Version Anglicised (ESVUK)

18 “What profit is an idol
    when its maker has shaped it,
    a metal image, a teacher of lies?
For its maker trusts in his own creation
    when he makes speechless idols!

Jeremiah 10:3-5 English Standard Version Anglicised (ESVUK)

for the customs of the peoples are vanity.[a]
A tree from the forest is cut down
    and worked with an axe by the hands of a craftsman.
They decorate it with silver and gold;
    they fasten it with hammer and nails
    so that it cannot move.
Their idols[b] are like scarecrows in a cucumber field,
    and they cannot speak;
they have to be carried,
    for they cannot walk.
Do not be afraid of them,
    for they cannot do evil,
    neither is it in them to do good.”
