Habakkuk 2:18-19

18-19"What's the use of a carved god

so skillfully carved by its sculptor?

What good is a fancy cast god

when all it tells is lies?

What sense does it make to be a pious god-maker

who makes gods that can't even talk?

Who do you think you are—

saying to a stick of wood, 'Wake up,'

Or to a dumb stone, 'Get up'?

Can they teach you anything about anything?

There's nothing to them but surface.

There's nothing on the inside.

20"But oh! God is in his holy Temple!

Quiet everyone—a holy silence. Listen!"
