Wisdom 11:22
Before you, the whole world is nothing but dust on the scale or but a drop of dew that falls to earth in the night.
For great power always belonged to thee alone: and who shall resist the strength of thy arm?
In your sight the whole world is a grain of sand, barely heavy enough to tip a pair of scales, a drop of dew on the ground in the morning.
Indeed, before you the whole universe is like a grain from a balance, or a drop of morning dew come down upon the earth.
Because the whole world before you is like a speck that tips the scales, and like a drop of morning dew that falls on the ground.
Because the whole world before you is like a speck that tips the scales, and like a drop of morning dew that falls on the ground.
Because the whole world before you is like a speck that tips the scales, and like a drop of morning dew that falls on the ground.
Because the whole world before you is like a speck that tips the scales, and like a drop of morning dew that falls on the ground.
Because the whole world before thee is like a speck that tips the scales, and like a drop of morning dew that falls upon the ground.
Because the whole world before thee is like a speck that tips the scales, and like a drop of morning dew that falls upon the ground.
For as the tongue (or a pointer) of a balance, so is the world before thee; and as a drop of dew rising before the light, that cometh down into (or onto) (the) earth. [For as a point(er) of a balance, so is before thee the roundness of earths; and as a drop of morrowtide dew, that goeth down into the earth.]
