This is what the Lord says:

“Do not learn the ways of the nations(A)
    or be terrified by signs(B) in the heavens,
    though the nations are terrified by them.
For the practices of the peoples are worthless;
    they cut a tree out of the forest,
    and a craftsman(C) shapes it with his chisel.(D)
They adorn it with silver(E) and gold;
    they fasten it with hammer and nails
    so it will not totter.(F)
Like a scarecrow in a cucumber field,
    their idols cannot speak;(G)
they must be carried
    because they cannot walk.(H)
Do not fear them;
    they can do no harm(I)
    nor can they do any good.”(J)
