Isaiah 44:18-20 Lexham English Bible (LEB)
18 They do not know,
and they do not understand,
for their eyes are besmeared so that they cannot see,
their minds so that they have no insight.
19 And no one takes it to heart, and there is no knowledge
and no understanding to say, “I burned half of it in the fire
and also I baked bread on its coals;
I roasted meat, and I have eaten.
And I shall make the rest of it into an abomination!
I shall bow down to a block of wood!”
20 He feeds on ashes; a deceived mind misleads him.
And he cannot save himself, and he cannot say,
“Is this not an illusion in my right hand?”
