If anyone turns a deaf ear to my instruction, even their prayers are detestable.
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.
See, they are all false! Their deeds amount to nothing; their images are but wind and confusion.
All who make idols are nothing, and the things they treasure are worthless. Those who would speak up for them are blind; they are ignorant, to their own shame.
