Isaiah 46:6-7

Context

46:6 Those who empty out gold from a purse

and weigh out silver on the scale 1 

hire a metalsmith, who makes it into a god.

They then bow down and worship it.

46:7 They put it on their shoulder and carry it;

they put it in its place and it just stands there;

it does not 2  move from its place.

Even when someone cries out to it, it does not reply;

it does not deliver him from his distress.
