To whom, then will you compare God?
What image will you compare him to?
As for an idol, a craftsman casts it, and a
goldsmith overlays it with gold and
fashions silver chains for it.
A man too poor to present such an offering
selects wood that will not rot.
He looks for a skilled craftsman to set up an
idol that will not topple.
Do you not know? Have you not heard?
Has it not been told you from the beginning?
Have you not understood since the
earth was founded?
He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth,
and it's people are like grasshoppers.
He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and
spreads them out like a tent to live in.
He brings princes to naught and reduces the
rulers of this world to nothing.
No sooner are they planted, no sooner do
they take root in the ground,
than he blows on them and they wither, and a
whirlwind sweeps them away like chaff.
To whom will you compare me? Or who is
my equal? says the Holy One.
Lift your eyes and look to the heavens:
Who created all these?
He who brings out the starry host one by one,
and calls them each by name.
Because of his great power and mighty strength,
not one of them is missing.
Why do you say, O Jacob, and complain, O Israel,
"My way is hidden from the Lord; my cause is
disregarded by my God"?
Do you not know? Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary, and his
understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary and increases
the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary, and
young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord will renew
their strength.
                 They will soar on wings like eagles;
                    they will run and not grow weary,
                         they will walk and not be faint.

                                      Isaiah 40: 18-31
