Hab 2:17-20

The man carves the idol and demands it speak, demand it teach, demand it breathe out life to him.
In contrast the Lord is in His holy temple, keep silent before Him.
Man demands his god speak, God demands His man listen.  
Why?
Because God is bringing judgment upon the people with no idols.  When you reject God as a just judge, you reject Jesus as your defense counselor.  To be just man must keep silent, so that Christ can intercede for you.  To stand before God with the block of wood you carved a face into and demand the wood speak on your behalf is certain to bring an inadequate defense on your behalf.  Let all the earth keep silent to be saved.
