There is No one Like God

Bel crouches; Nebo cowers.

Idols depicting them are consigned to beasts and cattle.

The images you carry are loaded,

as a burden for the weary animal.

The gods cower; they crouch together;

they are not able to rescue the burden,

but they themselves go into captivity.

Then they kneel and bow down to it.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 46:7 -

“They lift it to their shoulder and bear it along;

they set it in its place, and there it stands;

They cry out to it but it doesn’t answer;

it saves no one from his trouble.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 46:8 -

“Remember this and be brave;[fn]

take it to heart, you transgressors!

and I will do all my will.

“I call a bird of prey[fn] from the east,

a man for my purpose from a far country.

Yes, I have spoken; so I will also bring it about.

I have planned it; I will also do it.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 46:12 -

“Listen to me, you hardhearted,

far removed from justice:

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 46:13 -

“I am bringing my justice near;

it is not far away,

and my salvation will not delay.

I will put salvation in Zion,

my splendor in Israel.
