"Woe to him who quarrels1 with his Maker,2 to him who is but a potsherd3 among the potsherds on the ground. Does the clay say to the potter,4 'What are you making?'5 Does your work say, 'He has no hands'?610
Woe to him who says to his father, 'What have you begotten?' or to his mother, 'What have you brought to birth?'
"This is what the LORD says-- the Holy One7 of Israel, and its Maker:8 Concerning things to come, do you question me about my children, or give me orders about the work of my hands?912
It is I who made the earth10 and created mankind upon it. My own hands stretched out the heavens;11 I marshaled their starry hosts.12
