Bible: Hab 2:18-19

2:18 What good 1  is an idol? Why would a craftsman make it? 2 

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.
