12 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.
13 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 makes lightning for the rain, And brings out the 6wind from His storehouses.
14 Every man is 7stupid, devoid of knowledge; Every goldsmith is put to shame by his idols; For his molten images are deceitful, And there is no breath in them.
15 They are 8worthless, a work of mockery; In the 9time of their punishment they will perish.
16 The 10portion of Jacob is not like these; For the 11Maker of all is He, And 12Israel is the tribe of His inheritance; The 13LORD of hosts is His name.
