"The Lord made the earth by his power. He used his wisdom to build the world and his understanding to stretch out the skies.
When he thunders, the waters in the skies roar. He makes clouds rise in the sky all over the earth. He sends lightning with the rain and brings out the wind from his storehouses.
"People are so stupid and know so little. Goldsmiths are made ashamed by their idols, because those statues are only false gods. They have no breath in them.
They are worth nothing; people make fun of them. When they are judged, they will be destroyed.
But God, who is Jacob's Portion, is not like the idols. He made everything, and he chose Israel to be his special people. The Lord All-Powerful is his name.
