Isaiah 29:16 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

16 You have turned things around,
as if the potter were the same as the clay.
How can what is made say about its maker,
“He didn’t make me”?
How can what is formed
say about the one who formed it,
“He doesn’t understand what he’s doing”?

Isaiah 45:9 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

“Woe to the one who argues with his Maker—
one clay pot among many.[a]
Does clay say to the one forming it,
‘What are you making?’
Or does your work say,
‘He has no hands’?[b]


  1. Isaiah 45:9 Lit a clay pot with clay pots of the ground
  2. Isaiah 45:9 Or making? Your work has no hands.

Romans 9:20-21 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

20 But who are you, a mere man, to talk back to God? Will what is formed say to the one who formed it, “Why did you make me like this?” 21 Or has the potter no right over the clay, to make from the same lump one piece of pottery for honor and another for dishonor?
