God Rules the Whole Earth

21 Don't you know?
    Haven't you heard?
Hasn't it been clear
    since the time of creation?[a]
22 God is the one who rules
    the whole earth,
and we that live here
    are merely insects.
He spread out the heavens
like a curtain or an open tent.

23 God brings down rulers
    and turns them into nothing.
24 They are like flowers
freshly sprung up
    and starting to grow.
But when God blows on them,
they wilt and are carried off
    like straw in a storm.

25 The holy God asks,
“Who compares with me?
    Is anyone my equal?”

26 (A) Look at the evening sky!
    Who created the stars?
Who gave them each a name?
    Who leads them like an army?
The Lord is so powerful
that none of the stars
    are ever missing.
