Their (A)idols are silver and gold,
The (B)work of man’s hands.
They have mouths, but they (C)cannot speak;
They have eyes, but they cannot see;
They have ears, but they cannot hear;
They have noses, but they cannot smell;
[a]They have hands, but they cannot feel;
[b]They have feet, but they cannot walk;
They cannot make a sound with their throat.
(D)Those who make them [c]will become like them,
Everyone who trusts in them.

Or [b]an image, a (B)teacher of falsehood?
For its maker (C)trusts in his own handiwork

19 “Woe to him who (D)says to a piece of wood, ‘(E)Awake!’
To a mute stone, ‘Arise!’
And that is your teacher?
Behold, it is overlaid with (F)gold and silver,
And there is (G)no breath at all inside it.
