19 No one reflects in his heart
Or has knowledge or understanding, saying:
“Half of it I burned up in a fire,
And on its coals I baked bread and roasted meat to eat.
Should I, then, make the rest of it into a detestable thing?+
Should I worship a block* of wood from a tree?”
20 He feeds on ashes.
His own deluded heart has led him astray.
He cannot save himself,* nor does he say:
“Is there not a lie in my right hand?”
