2 Samuel 5:21
The Philistines abandoned their idols there, and David and his men carried them off.
Isaiah 46:1
Bel crouches; Nebo cowers. Their idols are consigned to beasts and cattle. The [images] you carry are loaded, as a burden for the weary [animal].
Isaiah 46:2
The gods cower; they crouch together; they are not able to rescue the burden, but they themselves go into captivity.
for they were
Psalm 115:4-8
4
Their idols are silver and gold, made by human hands.
5
They have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes, but cannot see.
6
They have ears, but cannot hear, noses, but cannot smell.
7
They have hands, but cannot feel, feet, but cannot walk. They cannot make a sound with their throats.
8
Those who make them are just like them, as are all who trust in them.
Isaiah 37:18
LORD, it is true that the kings of Assyria have devastated all these countries and their lands
Isaiah 37:19
and have thrown their gods into the fire; for they were not gods but made by human hands-- wood and stone. So they have destroyed them.
Isaiah 44:9-20
9
All who make idols are nothing, and what they treasure does not profit. Their witnesses do not see or know [anything], so they will be put to shame.
10
Who makes a god or casts a metal image for no profit?
11
Look, all its worshipers will be put to shame, and the craftsmen are humans. They all will assemble and stand; they all will be startled and put to shame.
12
The ironworker labors over the coals, shapes the idol with hammers, and works it with his strong arm. Also he grows hungry and his strength fails; he doesn't drink water and is faint.
13
The woodworker stretches out a measuring line, he outlines it with a stylus; he shapes it with chisels and outlines it with a compass. He makes it according to a human likeness, like a beautiful person, to dwell in a temple.
14
He cuts down cedars for his use, or he takes a cypress or an oak. He lets it grow strong among the trees of the forest. He plants a laurel, and the rain makes it grow.
15
It serves as fuel for man. He takes some of it and warms himself; also he kindles a fire and bakes bread; he even makes it into a god and worships it; he makes it an idol and bows down to it.
16
He burns half of it in a fire, and he roasts meat on that half. He eats the roast and is satisfied. He warms himself and says, "Ah! I am warm, I see the blaze."
17
He makes a god or his idol with the rest of it. He bows down to it and worships; He prays to it, "Save me, for you are my god."
18
Such people do not comprehend and cannot understand, for He has shut their eyes so they cannot see, and their minds so they cannot understand.
19
No one reflects, no one has the perception or insight to say, "I burned half of it in the fire, I also baked bread on its coals, I roasted meat and ate. I will make something detestable with the rest of it, and I will bow down to a block of wood."
20
He feeds on ashes. [His] deceived mind has led him astray, and he cannot deliver himself, or say, "Isn't there a lie in my right hand?"
Jeremiah 10:3-9
3
for the customs of the peoples are worthless. Someone cuts down a tree from the forest; [it is] worked by the hands of a craftsman with a chisel.
4
He decorates it with silver and gold. It is fastened with hammer and nails, so it won't totter.
5
Like scarecrows in a cucumber patch, their idols cannot speak. They must be carried because they cannot walk. Do not fear them for they can do no harm-- and they cannot do any good.
6
LORD, there is no one like You. You are great; Your name is great in power.
7
Who should not fear You, King of the nations? It is what You deserve. For among all the wise people of the nations and among all their kingdoms, there is no one like You.
8
They are both senseless and foolish, instructed by worthless idols [made of] wood!
9
Beaten silver is brought from Tarshish, and gold from Uphaz from the hands of a goldsmith, the work of a craftsman. Their clothing is blue and purple, all the work of skilled artisans.
Jeremiah 10:14-16
14
Everyone is stupid and ignorant. Every goldsmith is put to shame by [his] carved image, for his cast images are a lie; there is no breath in them.
15
They are worthless, a work to be mocked. At the time of their punishment they will be destroyed.
16
Jacob's Portion is not like these because He is the One who formed all things. Israel is the tribe of His inheritance; the LORD of Hosts is His name.
Acts 17:29
Being God's offspring, then, we shouldn't think that the divine nature is like gold or silver or stone, an image fashioned by human art and imagination.
