<< Psalms 115:4 >>



  • Deuteronomy 4:28
    There you will worship man-made gods of wood and stone, which cannot see or hear or eat or smell.
  • Jeremiah 10:3-5
    For the practices 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 cucumber field, 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.”
  • Isaiah 46:6-7
    Some pour out gold from their bags and weigh out silver on the scales; they hire a goldsmith to make it into a god, and they bow down and worship it.They lift it to their shoulders and carry it; they set it up in its place, and there it stands. From that spot it cannot move. Even though someone cries out to it, it cannot answer; it cannot save them from their troubles.
  • Isaiah 40:19-20
    As for an idol, a metalworker casts it, and a goldsmith overlays it with gold and fashions silver chains for it.A person too poor to present such an offering selects wood that will not rot; they look for a skilled worker to set up an idol that will not topple.
  • Isaiah 46:1-2
    Bel bows down, Nebo stoops low; their idols are borne by beasts of burden. The images that are carried about are burdensome, a burden for the weary.They stoop and bow down together; unable to rescue the burden, they themselves go off into captivity.
  • Habakkuk 2:18-20
    “ Of what value is an idol carved by a craftsman? Or an image that teaches lies? For the one who makes it trusts in his own creation; he makes idols that cannot speak.Woe to him who says to wood,‘ Come to life!’ Or to lifeless stone,‘ Wake up!’ Can it give guidance? It is covered with gold and silver; there is no breath in it.”The Lord is in his holy temple; let all the earth be silent before him.
  • Isaiah 44:10
    Who shapes a god and casts an idol, which can profit nothing?
  • Acts 19:26
    And you see and hear how this fellow Paul has convinced and led astray large numbers of people here in Ephesus and in practically the whole province of Asia. He says that gods made by human hands are no gods at all.
  • Isaiah 44:20
    Such a person feeds on ashes; a deluded heart misleads him; he cannot save himself, or say,“ Is not this thing in my right hand a lie?”
  • Hosea 8:6
    They are from Israel! This calf— a metalworker has made it; it is not God. It will be broken in pieces, that calf of Samaria.
  • 1 Corinthians 10 19-1 Corinthians 10 20
    Do I mean then that food sacrificed to an idol is anything, or that an idol is anything?No, but the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God, and I do not want you to be participants with demons.
  • Psalms 97:7
    All who worship images are put to shame, those who boast in idols— worship him, all you gods!
  • Isaiah 42:17
    But those who trust in idols, who say to images,‘ You are our gods,’ will be turned back in utter shame.
  • Psalms 135:15-18
    The idols of the nations are silver and gold, made by human hands.They have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes, but cannot see.They have ears, but cannot hear, nor is there breath in their mouths.Those who make them will be like them, and so will all who trust in them.
  • Isaiah 37:19
    They have thrown their gods into the fire and destroyed them, for they were not gods but only wood and stone, fashioned by human hands.
  • 2 Kings 19 18
    They have thrown their gods into the fire and destroyed them, for they were not gods but only wood and stone, fashioned by human hands.
