Bible: Habakkuk 2:18-20
What good is a metal image that gives misleading oracles? 3
Why would its creator place his trust in it 4
and make 5 such mute, worthless things?
2:19 The one who says to wood, ‘Wake up!’ is as good as dead 6 –
he who says 7 to speechless stone, ‘Awake!’
Can it give reliable guidance? 8
It is overlaid with gold and silver;
it has no life’s breath inside it.
2:20 But the
The whole earth is speechless in his presence!” 10
