Jeremiah 10

10:1 Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh to you, O house of
10:2 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and
 be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are
 dismayed at them.
10:3 For the customs of the people [are] vain: for [one] cutteth
 a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman,
 with the ax.
10:4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with
 nails and with hammers, that it may not move.
10:5 They [are] upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they
 must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of
 them; for they cannot do evil, neither also [is it] in them to
 do good.
10:6 Forasmuch as [there is] none like to thee, O LORD; thou
 [art] great, and thy name [is] great in might.
10:7 Who would not fear thee, O King of nations? for to thee
 doth it appertain: forasmuch as among all the wise [men] of the
 nations, and in all their kingdoms, [there is] none like to
10:8 But they are altogether brutish and foolish: the stock [is]
 a doctrine of vanities.
10:9 Silver spread into plates is brought from Tarshish, and
 gold from Uphaz, the work of the workman, and of the hands of
 the founder: blue and purple [is] their clothing: they [are]
 all the work of skillful [men].
10:10 But the LORD [is] the true God, he [is] the living God,
 and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble,
 and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.
10:11 Thus shall ye say to them, The gods that have not made the
 heavens and the earth, [even] they shall perish from the earth,
 and from under these heavens.
10:12 He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established
 the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by
 his discretion.
10:13 When he uttereth his voice, [there is] a multitude of
 waters in the heavens, and he causeth the vapors to ascend from
 the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings with rain, and
 bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures.
10:14 Every man is brutish in [his] knowledge: every founder is
 confounded by the graven image: for his molten image [is]
 falsehood, and [there is] no breath in them.
10:15 They [are] vanity, [and] the work of errors: in the time
 of their visitation they shall perish.
10:16 The portion of Jacob [is] not like them: for he [is] the
 former of all [things]; and Israel [is] the rod of his
 inheritance: The LORD of hosts [is] his name.
10:17 Gather up thy wares out of the land, O inhabitant of the
10:18 For thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will sling out the
 inhabitants of the land at this once, and will distress them
 that they may find [it so].
10:19 Woe is me for my hurt! my wound is grievous: but I said,
 Truly this [is] a grief, and I must bear it.
10:20 My tabernacle is laid waste, and all my cords are broken:
 my children are gone from me, and they [are] not: [there is]
 none to stretch forth my tent any more, and to set up my
10:21 For the pastors have become brutish, and have not sought
 the LORD: therefore they shall not prosper, and all their
 flocks shall be scattered.
10:22 Behold, the sound of the noise is come, and a great
 commotion from the north country, to make the cities of Judah
 desolate, [and] a den of dragons.
10:23 O LORD, I know that the way of man [is] not in himself:
 [it is] not in man that walketh to direct his steps.
10:24 O LORD, correct me, but with judgment; not in thy anger,
 lest thou bring me to nothing.
10:25 Pour out thy fury upon the heathen that know thee not, and
 upon the families that call not on thy name: for they have
 eaten up Jacob, and devoured him, and consumed him, and have
 made his habitation desolate.
