Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, or with the breadth of his hand marked off the heavens? Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket, or weighed the mountains on the scales and the hills in a balance? Who has understood the mind of the Lord, or instructed him as his counselor? Whom did the Lord consult to enlighten him, and who taught him the right way? Who was it that taught him knowledge or showed him the path of understanding? Surely the nations are like a drop in a bucket; they are regarded as dust on the scales; he weighs the islands as though they were fine dust
Just Think: We could travel at the speed of light for billions of years and not reach the end of the universe. Yet God in Isaiah 40, says The entire universe is on a miniature scale when compared to God the mighty Creator. Breadth of his hand. The distance between the outstretched thumb and the little finger, half a cubit, or about 9 in.
Get your mind around that, and let it sink in….Frank
