18What use is an idol once its maker has shaped it a cast image, a teacher of lies? For its maker trusts in what has been made, though the product is only an idol that cannot speak! 19Alas for you who say to the wood, Wake up! to silent stone, Rouse yourself! Can it teach? See, it is gold and silver plated, and there is no breath in it at all. 20But the Lord is in his holy temple; let all the earth keep silence before him!
