26 Lift up your eyes to the sky and see for yourself.
    Who do you think created the cosmos?[a]
    He lit every shining star and formed every glowing galaxy,
    and stationed them all where they belong.
    He has numbered, counted, and given everyone a name.
    They shine because of God’s incredible power
    and awesome might; not one fails to appear!
27 Why, then, O Jacob’s tribes, would you ever complain?
    And my chosen Israel, why would you say,
    “Yahweh isn’t paying attention to my situation.[b]
    He has lost all interest in what happens to me.”[c]
28 Don’t you know? Haven’t you been listening?
    Yahweh is the one and only everlasting God,
    the Creator of all you can see and imagine!
    He never gets weary or worn out.
    His intelligence is unlimited;
    he is never puzzled over what to do!
