Bible: Isaiah 45:9-13
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
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.
I give orders to all the heavenly lights. 16
45:13 It is me – I stir him up and commission him; 17
I will make all his ways level.
He will rebuild my city;
he will send my exiled people home,
but not for a price or a bribe,”
