Isaiah 44:18-20 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
18 They do not know or understand!
For He smeared over their eyes, so they cannot see,
and their hearts, so they cannot understand.
19 No one reflects in his heart,
with no knowledge or discernment
to say, “I burned half of it in the fire
and I also baked bread on its coals.
I roasted meat and ate—
and then I make the rest of it an abomination?
Should I bow before a block of wood?”
20 He is feeding on ashes.
A deceived heart has led him astray,
so he cannot deliver his soul, nor say,
“Isn’t what is in my right hand a fraud?”
