Thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth.[1] Behold, thou takest up the isles as a very little thing! All nations before thee are as nothing; and they are counted to thee as less than nothing and vanity.[2] When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers,--the moon and the stars which thou hast ordained;--what is man that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man that thou visitest him?[3] The heavens, the heaven of heavens cannot contain thee.[4] Lo! these are parts of thy ways; but how little a portion is heard of thee! The thunder of thy power who can understand![5] Shall not thine excellency make me afraid, and thy dread fall upon me?[6] Shall I not hide me in the dust, for fear of the Lord; and for the glory of his Majesty?[7] Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth.[8] Who would not fear thee, O King of nations?[9] Thine is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty.[10] Salvation, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God! Alleluiah! for the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth![11]
