Bible: Jeremiah 10:2-4

10:2 The Lord says,

Do not start following pagan religious practices. 1 

Do not be in awe of signs that occur 2  in the sky

even though the nations hold them in awe.

10:3 For the religion 3  of these people is worthless.

They cut down a tree in the forest,

and a craftsman makes it into an idol with his tools. 4 

10:4 He decorates it with overlays of silver and gold.

He uses hammer and nails to fasten it 5  together

so that it will not fall over.
