But God made1 the earth2 by his power; he founded the world by his wisdom3 and stretched out the heavens4 by his understanding.
When he thunders,5 the waters in the heavens roar; he makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth. He sends lightning6 with the rain7 and brings out the wind from his storehouses.814
Everyone is senseless and without knowledge; every goldsmith is shamed9 by his idols. His images are a fraud;10 they have no breath in them.
They are worthless,11 the objects of mockery; when their judgment comes, they will perish.
He who is the Portion12 of Jacob is not like these, for he is the Maker of all things,13 including Israel, the tribe of his inheritance14-- the LORD Almighty is his name.15
