Isaiah 40:12-17

View Full Chapter

12Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, or with the breadth of his hand marked off the heavens? Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket, or weighed the mountains on the scales and the hills in a balance?

13Who can fathom the Spirit Or mind of the LORD, or instruct the LORD as his counselor?

14Whom did the LORD consult to enlighten him, and who taught him the right way? Who was it that taught him knowledge, or showed him the path of understanding?

15Surely the nations are like a drop in a bucket; they are regarded as dust on the scales; he weighs the islands as though they were fine dust.

16Lebanon is not sufficient for altar fires, nor its animals enough for burnt offerings.

17Before him all the nations are as nothing; they are regarded by him as worthless and less than nothing.
