To whom then will you liken God ?
Or what likeness will you compare to Him ?
The workman molds an image.
The goldsmith overspreads it with gold.
And the silversmith casts silver chains.
Whoever is too impoverished for such 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.
---Isaiah 40:18-20 NKJV
You shall not make for yourself a carved image-any
likeness of anything that is in heaven above or that is in the
earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth;
you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I
, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the
iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third or fourth
generations of those who hate Me,
but showing mercy to thousands to those who love Me and
keep My commandments.
