You turn things around! Shall the potter be considered as equal with the clay, That what is made would say to its maker, "He did not make me"; Or what is formed say to him who formed it, "He has no understanding "?
Whose collapse is like the smashing of a potter's jar, So ruthlessly shattered That a sherd will not be found among its pieces To take fire from a hearth Or to scoop water from a cistern."

But now, thus says the LORD , your Creator, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel, "Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine!
Everyone who is called by My name, And whom I have created for My glory, Whom I have formed, even whom I have made."
"You are My witnesses," declares the LORD , "And My servant whom I have chosen, So that you may know and believe Me And understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, And there will be none after Me.
"The people whom I formed for Myself Will declare My praise.
Thus says the LORD who made you And formed you from the womb, who will help you, 'Do not fear, O Jacob My servant; And you Jeshurun whom I have chosen.

Who has fashioned a god or cast an idol to no profit?
The man shapes iron into a cutting tool and does his work over the coals, fashioning it with hammers and working it with his strong arm. He also gets hungry and his strength fails; he drinks no water and becomes weary.
"Remember these things, O Jacob, And Israel, for you are My servant; I have formed you, you are My servant, O Israel, you will not be forgotten by Me.
Thus says the LORD , your Redeemer, and the one who formed you from the womb, "I, the LORD , am the maker of all things, Stretching out the heavens by Myself And spreading out the earth all alone ,
The One forming light and creating darkness, Causing well-being and creating calamity; I am the LORD who does all these.
"Woe to the one who quarrels with his Maker - An earthenware vessel among the vessels of earth! Will the clay say to the potter, 'What are you doing?' Or the thing you are making say, 'He has no hands '?

For thus says the LORD , who created the heavens (He is the God who formed the earth and made it, He established it and did not create it a waste place, but formed it to be inhabited ), "I am the LORD , and there is none else.

"No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD , And their vindication is from Me," declares the LORD .
But now, O LORD , You are our Father, We are the clay, and You our potter; And all of us are the work of Your hand.
