Letter of Jeremiah 15
Just as a person’s utensil is useless after it’s broken, so are the Gentiles’ gods after they have been placed in their temples.
Another has a dagger in its right hand, and an ax, but cannot defend itself from war and robbers.
Another has a dagger in its right hand, and an axe, but cannot defend itself from war and robbers.
It has a dagger in its right hand, and has an axe; but it cannot save itself from war and robbers.
Also they have in the hand a sword, and an ax; but they deliver not themselves from battle and from thieves. [Forsooth they have also in the hand sword and ax; forsooth they deliver not themselves from battle and day thieves.]
