Bible: Isa. 44:14-17
44:14 He cuts down cedars
and acquires a cypress 1 or an oak.
He gets 2 trees from the forest;
he plants a cedar 3 and the rain makes it grow.
44:15 A man uses it to make a fire; 4
he takes some of it and warms himself.
Yes, he kindles a fire and bakes bread.
Then he makes a god and worships it;
he makes an idol and bows down to it. 5
44:16 Half of it he burns in the fire –
over that half he cooks 6 meat;
he roasts a meal and fills himself.
Yes, he warms himself and says,
‘Ah! I am warm as I look at the fire.’
44:17 With the rest of it he makes a god, his idol;
he bows down to it and worships it.
He prays to it, saying,
‘Rescue me, for you are my god!’
