and marked off the heavens by the span,
and calculated the dust of the earth by the measure,
Who has directed the Spirit of the Lord, or as His counselor has informed Him?
To whom then will you liken God? Or what likeness will you compare with Him?
Do you not know? Have you not heard? Has it not been declared to you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?
It is He who sits above the circle of the earth,
and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers,
Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain and spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.
Lift up your eyes on high and see who has created these stars,
He calls them all by name;
Because of the greatness of His might and the strength of His power,
not one of them is missing.
Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth;
For I am God, and there is no other.
I have sworn by Myself, the word has gone forth from my mouth in righteousness and will not turn back,
that to Me every knee will bow, every tongue will swear allegiance."
Isaiah 40:12-13,18, 21-22, 26; 45:22-23
