Bible: Isaiah 41:21-24

The Lord Challenges the Pagan Gods

41:21Present your argument,” says the Lord.

“Produce your evidence,” 1  says Jacob’s king. 2 

41:22Let them produce evidence! Let them tell us what will happen!

Tell us about your earlier predictive oracles, 3 

so we may examine them 4  and see how they were fulfilled. 5 

Or decree for us some future events!

41:23 Predict how future events will turn out, 6 

so we might know you are gods.

Yes, do something good or bad,

so we might be frightened and in awe. 7 

41:24 Look, you are nothing, and your accomplishments are nonexistent;

the one who chooses to worship you is disgusting. 8
