40:19 A craftsman casts 1  an idol;

a metalsmith overlays it with gold

and forges silver chains for it.

Isaiah 41:7

the one who wields the hammer encourages 2  the one who pounds on the anvil.

He approves the quality of the welding, 3 

and nails it down so it won’t fall over.”

Isaiah 46:6


46:6 Those who empty out gold from a purse

and weigh out silver on the scale 4 

hire a metalsmith, who makes it into a god.

They then bow down and worship it.
