Season’s greetings from Jeremiah 10:2–8:
2 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
3 For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
4 They deck it with silver and with gold…
8 …They are altogether brutish and foolish: the stock is a doctrine of vanities.
