And turn ye not aside
From his worship: for then; if they turned aside from that:
should ye go after vain things;
idols, which are vanity, and less than vanity:
which cannot profit nor deliver;
neither bestow good things on their votaries, nor deliver them from evils, or from the hands of their enemies
for they are vain;
empty, useless, and unprofitable; an idol is nothing in the world, ( 1 Corinthians 8:4 ) .
