the Lord says
to you, O house of Israel. This
is what the Lord says: Do not learn the ways
of the heathen or be terrified by signs in the sky, though the heathen are terrified by them
. For the customs of the peoples are worthless; they
cut a tree
out of the forest, and a craftsman shapes it with
his chisel. They
adorn it with silver and gold; they fasten it with hammer and nails so it will
not totter. Like
a scarecrow in a melon patch, their idols cannot speak; they must
be carried because they cannot walk
. Do not fear
them; they can do no harm
nor can they do any good
. But the Lord is the true
God; He is the living God, the eternal King
. ~ Jeremiah 10:1-5
