以赛亚书 41:6-7, 4 Isaiah 41:6-7, 4
他们各人帮助邻舍，各人对弟兄说：壮胆吧！ 木匠勉励银匠，用锤打光的勉励打砧的，论焊工说，焊得好；又用钉子钉稳，免得偶像动摇。谁行做成就这事，从起初宣召历代呢？就是我 ― 耶和华！我是首先的，也与末后的同在。 The idol makers encourage one another, saying to each other, “Be strong!” The carver encourages the goldsmith, and the molder helps at the anvil. “Good,” they say. “It’s coming along fine.” Carefully they join the parts together, then fasten the thing in place so it won’t fall over. Who has done such mighty deeds, summoning each new generation from the beginning of time? It is I, the Lord, the First and the Last. I alone am he.”
The idol makers are fearful that their idols are not good enough, flimsy and would fall over; not effective and no one would want them. But our Lord is the mighty God who accomplishes great things. He is the God of the generations; He is the First and the Last, the only Lord， Creator of Heaven and earth.
