Bible: Isaiah 45:9-12

The Lord Gives a Warning

45:9 One who argues with his creator is in grave danger, 1 

one who is like a mere 2  shard among the other shards on the ground!

The clay should not say to the potter, 3 

“What in the world 4  are you doing?

Your work lacks skill! 5 

45:10 Danger awaits one who says 6  to his father,

What in the world 7  are you fathering?”

and to his mother,

“What in the world are you bringing forth? 8 

45:11 This is what the Lord says,

the Holy One of Israel, 9  the one who formed him,

concerning things to come: 10 

“How dare you question me 11  about my children!

How dare you tell me what to do with 12  the work of my own hands!

45:12 I made the earth,

I created the people who live 13  on it.

It was me – my hands 14  stretched out the sky, 15 

I give orders to all the heavenly lights. 16
