It is 1He who made the earth by His power, Who 2established the world by His wisdom ; And by His understanding He has 3stretched out the heavens.
When He utters His 4voice, there is a tumult of waters in the heavens, And He causes the 5clouds to ascend from the end of the earth ; He makeslightning for the rain, And brings out the 6wind from His storehouses.
14Everyman is 7stupid, devoid of knowledge ; Everygoldsmith is put to shame by his aidols ; For his moltenimages are deceitful, And there is nobreath in them.
They are 8worthless, a work of mockery ; In the 9time of their punishment they will perish.
The 10portion of Jacob is not like these ; For the b11Maker of all is He, And 12Israel is the tribe of His inheritance ; The 13LORD of hosts is His name.
