Praying to images
⁶Some people pour out gold from a bag.
And they weigh out silver on the scales .
Then they pay someone who can work with gold.
He makes it into a god.
Then they bend down and they worship it!
⁷They lift it on to their shoulders and they carry it.
They put it in its place and it stands there.
It cannot move from that place.
If anyone shouts out to it,
it cannot answer.
It cannot save anybody from his troubles.
⁸Remember this and fix it in your mind.
Do not forget it, you people who fight against me.
¹²Listen to me, you people who will not change your minds.
Listen, you people who are not righteous in any way.
¹³Soon, I will come.
And I will do what is right.
I am not a long way from you.
I will not wait for a long time.
See Isaiah 46:6-8, 12-13
