26 Look up[a] and see!
Who created(A) these?
He brings out the stars by number;
he calls all of them by name.(B)
Because of his great power and strength,
not one of them is missing.

27 Jacob, why do you say,
and, Israel, why do you assert:
“My way is hidden from the Lord,
and my claim is ignored by my God”?(C)
28 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,(D)
the Creator of the whole earth.
He never becomes faint or weary;
there is no limit to his understanding.(E)
