289 Wisdom's greatest ire is reserved for those who worship the "works of men's hands" (13:10). They are subjected to a satire on the folly of a woodcutter who uses his scraps to make a god (13:11-19). The scrap from which a god is made is "useful for nothing" (eij ouqen euxrhston, 13:13).
This is followed by another satire on sailors whose god is "more fragile than the ship which carries him" (14:1). Following this satire appears the antithesis of God's providence which can bring even rank amateurs safely into port (14:3-7). Wisdom's clearest verdict on idols, their worshipers and their makers then appears.
But the idol made with hands is accursed,
and so is he who made it; because he did the work, and the perishable
thing was named a god. For equally hateful to God are the ungodly
man and his ungodliness for what was done will be punished together
with him who did it. Therefore there will be a visitation also
upon the heathen idols, because, though part of what God created,
they became an abomination, and became traps for the souls of men and a snare to the feet of the foolish.
Wisdom of Solomon 14:8-11184
These people are simply "accursed." The tragedy of it is that although a man may make an idol,
he is better than the objects he worships, since he has life, but they never have. Wisdom of Solomon 15:17
Cf. 14:30-31; 15:6, 10.
