Bible: Jer. 10:5, 15
10:5 Such idols are like scarecrows in a cucumber field.
They cannot talk.
They must be carried
because they cannot walk.
Do not be afraid of them
because they cannot hurt you.
And they do not have any power to help you.” 1
10:15 They are worthless, mere objects to be mocked. 2
When the time comes to punish them, they will be destroyed.
