11Forasmuch as he knew not his Maker, and him that inspired into him an active soul, and breathed in a living spirit. 12But they counted our life a pastime, and our time here a market for gain: for, say they, we must be getting every way, though it be by evil means. 13For this man, that of earthly matter maketh brittle vessels and graven images, knoweth himself to offend above all others. 14And all the enemies of thy people, that hold them in subjection, are most foolish, and are more miserable than very babes.15For they counted all the idols of the heathen to be gods: which neither have the use of eyes to see, nor noses to draw breath, nor ears to hear, nor fingers of hands to handle; and as for their feet, they are slow to go. 16For man made them, and he that borrowed his own spirit fashioned them: but no man can make a god like unto himself. 17For being mortal, he worketh a dead thing with wicked hands: for he himself is better than the things which he worshippeth: whereas he lived once, but they never.
