Daily Scripture - Feb 4

Isaiah 40:15-20
(Memorization Scripture 16-17)

15 Behold, the nations are as a drop in a bucket,
And are counted as the small dust on the scales;
Look, He lifts up the isles as a very little thing.
16 And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn,
Nor its beasts sufficient for a burnt offering.
17 All nations before Him are as nothing,
And they are counted by Him less than nothing and worthless.

18 To whom then will you liken God?
Or what likeness will you compare to Him?
19 The workman molds an image,
The goldsmith overspreads it with gold,
And the silversmith casts silver chains.
20 Whoever is too impoverished for such [i]a contribution
Chooses a tree that will not rot;
He seeks for himself a skillful workman
To prepare a carved image that will not totter.

15 看哪,萬民都像水桶的一滴,又算如天平上的微塵,他舉起眾海島,好像極微之物。 16 黎巴嫩的樹林不夠當柴燒,其中的走獸也不夠做燔祭。 17 萬民在他面前好像虛無,被他看為不及虛無,乃為虛空。18 你們究竟將誰比神,用什麼形象與神比較呢? 19 偶像是匠人鑄造,銀匠用金包裹,為它鑄造銀鏈。 20 窮乏獻不起這樣供物的,就揀選不能朽壞的樹木,為自己尋找巧匠,立起不能搖動的偶像。
