He made the earth by his power, and he preserves it by his wisdom. He has stretched out the heavens by his understanding.
When he speaks, there is thunder in the heavens. He causes the clouds to rise over the earth. He sends the lightning with the rain and releases the wind from his storehouses.
Compared to him, all people are foolish and have no knowledge at all! They make idols, but the idols will disgrace their makers, for they are frauds. They have no life or power in them.
Idols are worthless; they are lies! The time is coming when they will all be destroyed.
But the God of Israel is no idol! He is the Creator of everything that exists, including his people, his own special possession. The LORD Almighty is his name!
