Isaiah 44:13

Context
NET ©

A carpenter takes measurements; 1  he marks out an outline of its form; 2  he scrapes 3  it with chisels, and marks it with a compass. He patterns it after the human form, 4  like a well-built human being, and puts it in a shrine. 5 

NIV ©

The carpenter measures with a line and makes an outline with a marker; he roughs it out with chisels and marks it with compasses. He shapes it in the form of man, of man in all his glory, that it may dwell in a shrine.

NASB ©

Another shapes wood, he extends a measuring line; he outlines it with red chalk. He works it with planes and outlines it with a compass, and makes it like the form of a man, like the beauty of man, so that it may sit in a house.

NLT ©

Then the wood–carver measures and marks out a block of wood, takes the tool, and carves the figure of a man. Now he has a wonderful idol that cannot even move from where it is placed!

MSG ©

The woodworker draws up plans for his no-god, traces it on a block of wood. He shapes it with chisels and planes into human shape--a beautiful woman, a handsome man, ready to be placed in a chapel.

BBE ©

The woodworker is measuring out the wood with his line, marking it out with his pencil: after smoothing it with his plane, and making circles on it with his instrument, he gives it the form and glory of a man, so that it may be placed in the house.

NRSV ©

The carpenter stretches a line, marks it out with a stylus, fashions it with planes, and marks it with a compass; he makes it in human form, with human beauty, to be set up in a shrine.

NKJV ©

The craftsman stretches out his rule, He marks one out with chalk; He fashions it with a plane, He marks it out with the compass, And makes it like the figure of a man, According to the beauty of a man, that it may remain in the house.

NET © Notes

tn Heb “stretches out a line” (ASV similar); NIV “measures with a line.”

tn Heb “he makes an outline with the [?].” The noun שֶׂרֶד (shered) occurs only here; it apparently refers to some type of tool or marker. Cf. KJV “with a line”; ASV “with a pencil”; NAB, NRSV “with a stylus”; NASB “with red chalk”; NIV “with a marker.”

tn Heb “works” (so NASB) or “fashions” (so NRSV); NIV “he roughs it out.”

tn Heb “he makes it like the pattern of a man”; NAB “like a man in appearance.”

tn Heb “like the glory of man to sit [in] a house”; NIV “that it may dwell in a shrine.”
