Bible: Isaiah 44:6-8

The Absurdity of Idolatry

44:6 This is what the Lord, Israel’s king, says,

their protector, 1  the Lord who commands armies:

“I am the first and I am the last,

there is no God but me.

44:7 Who is like me? Let him make his claim! 2 

Let him announce it and explain it to me –

since I established an ancient people – 3 

let them announce future events! 4 

44:8 Don’t panic! Don’t be afraid! 5 

Did I not tell you beforehand and decree it?

You are my witnesses! Is there any God but me?

There is no other sheltering rock; 6  I know of none.
