Who can doubt God? He made the universe and all that is in it!

BibleGateway: Isaiah 40:12-26

ESV Text: Isaiah 40:12-26


KJV Text:

The section starts at about 1:42 and ends at about 4:11

     12 Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance? 13 Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being his counsellor hath taught him? 14 With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and shewed to him the way of understanding? 15 Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing. 16 And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering. 17 All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.

     18 To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him? 19 The workman melteth a graven image, and the goldsmith spreadeth it over with gold, and casteth silver chains. 20 He that is so impoverished that he hath no oblation chooseth a tree that will not rot; he seeketh unto him a cunning workman to prepare a graven image, that shall not be moved. 21 Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth? 22 It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in: 23 That bringeth the princes to nothing; he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity. 24 Yea, they shall not be planted; yea, they shall not be sown: yea, their stock shall not take root in the earth: and he shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither, and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble. 25 To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One. 26 Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.(KJV)

1. All praise to God, who reigns above, 
The God of all creation, 
The God of wonders, power, and love, 
The God of our salvation! 
With healing balm my soul He fills, 
The God who every sorrow stills,– 
To God all praise and glory! 

2. What God’s almighty power hath made 
His gracious mercy keepeth; 
By morning dawn or evening shade 
His watchful eye ne’er sleepeth; 
Within the kingdom of His might 
Lo, all is just and all is right,– 
To God all praise and glory! 

3. I cried to Him in time of need: 
Lord God, oh, hear my calling! 
For death He gave me life indeed 
And kept my feet from falling. 
For this my thanks shall endless be; 
Oh, thank Him, thank our God, with me,– 
To God all praise and glory! 

4. The Lord forsaketh not His flock, 
His chosen generation; 
He is their Refuge and their Rock, 
Their Peace and their Salvation. 
As with a mother’s tender hand 
He leads His own, His chosen band,– 
To God all praise and glory! 

5. Ye who confess Christ’s holy name, 
To God give praise and glory! 
Ye who the Father’s power proclaim, 
To God give praise and glory! 
All idols under foot be trod, 
The Lord is God! The Lord is God! 
To God all praise and glory! 

6. Then come before His presence now 
And banish fear and sadness; 
To your Redeemer pay your vow 
And sing with joy and gladness: 
Though great distress my soul befell, 
The Lord, my God, did all things well,– 
To God all praise and glory!
