It is 1He who made the earth by His power, Who established the world by His wisdom, And by His understanding He 2stretched out the heavens.
When He utters His 3voice, there is a tumult of waters in the heavens, And He causes the 4clouds to ascend from the end of the earth; He makeslightning for the rain And bringsforth the 5wind from His storehouses.
176Allmankind is stupid, devoid of knowledge; Everygoldsmith is put to shame by his aidols, For his moltenimages are 7deceitful, And there is nobreath in them.
They are 8worthless, a work of mockery; In the time of their punishment they will perish.
The 9portion of Jacob is not like these; For the bMaker of all is He, And of the ctribe of His inheritance; The 10LORD of hosts is His name.
