New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
12 It is he who made the earth by his power, who established the world by his wisdom, and by his understanding stretched out the heavens. 12 But God made the earth by his power; he founded the world by his wisdom and stretched out the heavens by his understanding.
13 When he utters his voice, there is a tumult of waters in the heavens, and he makes the mist rise from the ends of the earth. He makes lightnings for the rain, and he brings out the wind from his storehouses. 13 When he thunders, the waters in the heavens roar; he makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth. He sends lightning with the rain and brings out the wind from his storehouses.
14 Everyone is stupid and without knowledge; goldsmiths are all put to shame by their idols; for their images are false, and there is no breath in them. 14 Everyone is senseless and without knowledge; every goldsmith is shamed by his idols. His images are a fraud; they have no breath in them.
15 They are worthless, a work of delusion; at the time of their punishment they shall perish. 15 They are worthless, the objects of mockery; when their judgment comes, they will perish.
16 Not like these is the Lord, the portion of Jacob, for he is the one who formed all things, and Israel is the tribe of his inheritance; the Lord of hosts is his name. 16 He who is the Portion of Jacob is not like these, for he is the Maker of all things, including Israel, the tribe of his inheritance-- the LORD Almighty is his name.
