10 But the Lord is the true God;
    he is the living God,(A) the eternal King.(B)

11 “Tell them this: ‘These gods, who did not make the heavens and the earth, will perish(F) from the earth and from under the heavens.’”[a]

12 But God made(G) the earth(H) by his power;
    he founded the world by his wisdom(I)
    and stretched out the heavens(J) by his understanding.
13 When he thunders,(K) the waters in the heavens roar;
    he makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth.
He sends lightning(L) with the rain(M)
    and brings out the wind from his storehouses.(N)

    every goldsmith is shamed(O) by his idols.
The images he makes are a fraud;(P)

15 They are worthless,(Q) the objects of mockery;
    when their judgment comes, they will perish.
