Isaiah 45:7-9 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

I form light and create darkness,
    I make weal and create woe;
    I the Lord do all these things.

Shower, O heavens, from above,
    and let the skies rain down righteousness;
let the earth open, that salvation may spring up,[a]
    and let it cause righteousness to sprout up also;
    I the Lord have created it.

Woe to you who strive with your Maker,
    earthen vessels with the potter![b]
Does the clay say to the one who fashions it, “What are you making”?
    or “Your work has no handles”?
