Jeremiah 10:12-16

MSG 12 But it is God whose power made the earth, whose wisdom gave shape to the world, who crafted the cosmos. NIV 12 But God made the earth by his power; he founded the world by his wisdom and stretched out the heavens by his understanding. MSG 13 He thunders, and rain pours down. He sends the clouds soaring. He embellishes the storm with lightnings, launches wind from his warehouse. NIV 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. MSG 14 Stick-god worshipers looking mighty foolish, god-makers embarrassed by their handmade gods! Their gods are frauds - dead sticks, NIV 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. MSG 15 deadwood gods, tasteless jokes. When the fires of judgment come, they'll be ashes. NIV 15 They are worthless, the objects of mockery; when their judgment comes, they will perish. MSG 16 But the Portion-of-Jacob is the real thing. He put the whole universe together And pays special attention to Israel. His name? God-of-the-Angel-Armies! NIV 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.
