But the LORD is the true God; he is the living God,1 the eternal King.2 When he is angry,3 the earth trembles;4 the nations cannot endure his wrath.511
"Tell them this: 'These gods, who did not make the heavens and the earth, will perish6 from the earth and from under the heavens.' "a12
But God made7 the earth8 by his power; he founded the world by his wisdom9 and stretched out the heavens10 by his understanding.
When he thunders,11 the waters in the heavens roar; he makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth. He sends lightning12 with the rain13 and brings out the wind from his storehouses.1414
Everyone is senseless and without knowledge; every goldsmith is shamed15 by his idols. His images are a fraud;16 they have no breath in them.
They are worthless,17 the objects of mockery; when their judgment comes, they will perish.
