Daily Bible Verse - 10/4/2007 - Romans 9:20

NIV But who are you, O man, to talk back to God? "Shall what is formed say to him who formed it, 'Why did you make me like this?' "
KJV Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?
NASB On the contrary, who are you, O man, who answers back to God? The thing molded will not say to the molder, "Why did you make me like this," will it?
Romans 9:20
The apostle (Paul) first rebukes the insolence of any creature who dares to find fault with his Creator. Finite man, loaded down with sin, ignorance, and weakness, is in no position to talk back to God or question the wisdom or justice of His ways.

Did you know?
Jeremiah 18:1-6 is the most vivid passage about pottery-making in the Bible. It contains a realistic description of the potter's workshop (18:1-4), and it uses figurative language for the potter's craft. The image of God as the Master Potter also appears in Genesis 2:7; Isaiah 29:16; 64:8; Job 10:8-9, and Romans 9:20-24.
