Who measured the oceans in the palm of his hand?
Who uses his hand to measure the sky?
Who used a bowl to measure the dust of the earth?
Who used scales to measure the mountain and hills?
Who could know the Lord's mind?
Who could be his teacher or give him advice?
Did the Lord ask for anyone's help?
Did anyone teach him to be fair?
Did anyone teach him knowledge?
Did anyone teach him to be wise?
Look, all the nations of the world are like one small drop in the bucket.
If the Lord took all the faraway nations and put them on his scales,
they would be like small pieces of dust.
All the trees in Lebanon are not enough
to burn on the altar for the Lord.
And all the animals in Lebanon
are not enough to kill for a sacrifice.
Compared to God all the nations of the world are nothing.
Compared to him, they are worth nothing at all.
