Letter of Jeremiah 70
In the same way, their wooden gods covered in gold and silver could be compared to a briar patch where every bird perches or to a dead body thrown out into the darkness.
Like a scarecrow in a cucumber bed, which guards nothing, so are their gods of wood, overlaid with gold and silver.
Like a scarecrow in a cucumber bed, which guards nothing, so are their gods of wood, overlaid with gold and silver.
Like a scarecrow in a cucumber bed, that guards nothing, so are their gods of wood, overlaid with gold and silver.
For why as a man of rags, or shoeless, in a place where gourds [or cucumbers, that be bitter herbs], waxed, keepeth nothing, so be their gods of tree (or of wood), and of silver, and of gold.
