  1. Isaiah 46:1 Lit carried by you

“They (A)lift it upon the shoulder and carry it;
They set it in its place and it stands there.
(B)It does not move from its place.
Though one may cry to it, it (C)cannot answer;
It (D)cannot deliver him from his distress.

And they (A)cannot speak;
They must be (B)carried,
Because they cannot walk!
Do not fear them,
For they (C)can do no harm,
Nor can they do any good.”
