12 Who has (A)measured the [a]waters in the hollow of His hand,
And measured the heavens with a [b]span,
And [c]calculated the dust of the earth with a measure,
And weighed the mountains in a balance
And the hills in a pair of scales?
13 (B)Who has [d]directed the Spirit of the Lord,
Or as His (C)counselor has informed Him?
14 (D)With whom did He consult and who (E)gave Him understanding?
And who taught Him in the path of justice and taught Him knowledge,
And informed Him of the way of understanding?
