Isaiah 40:12–17

12 Who has ameasured the 1waters in the hollow of His hand,

And marked off the heavens by the 2span,

And 3calculated the dust of the earth by the measure,

And weighed the mountains in a balance

And the hills in a pair of scales?

13 aWho has 1directed the Spirit of the Lord,

Or as His bcounselor has informed Him?

14 aWith whom did He consult and who bgave Him understanding?

And who taught Him in the path of justice and taught Him knowledge

And informed Him of the way of understanding?

15 Behold, the anations are like a drop from a bucket,

And are regarded as a speck of bdust on the scales;

Behold, He lifts up the 1islands like fine dust.

16 Even Lebanon is not enough to burn,

Nor its abeasts enough for a burnt offering.

17 aAll the nations are as nothing before Him,

They are regarded by Him as less than nothing and 1meaningless.
