The Ordinances of Heaven

God rules over all

Job 38 NRSV (selected verses)
‘Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? . . . Who determined its measurements . . . or who stretched the line upon it?
On what were its bases sunk, or who laid its cornerstone when the morning stars sang together and all the heavenly beings shouted for joy?
‘Or who shut in the sea with doors when it burst out from the womb? — when I made the clouds its garment, and thick darkness its swaddling band, 10 and prescribed bounds for it, and set bars and doors, 11 and said, “Thus far shall you come, and no farther, and here shall your proud waves be stopped”?
12 ‘Have you commanded the morning since your days began, and caused the dawn to know its place?
16 ‘Have you entered into the springs of the sea, or walked in the recesses of the deep?
17 Have the gates of death been revealed to you, or have you seen the gates of deep darkness?
18 Have you comprehended the expanse of the earth?
19 ‘Where is the way to the dwelling of light, and where is the place of darkness?
22 ‘Have you entered the storehouses of the snow, or have you seen the storehouses of the hail, 23 which I have reserved for the time of trouble, for the day of battle and war?
25 ‘Who has cut a channel for the torrents of rain, and a way for the thunderbolt, 26 to bring rain on a land where no one lives, on the desert, which is empty of human life, 27 to satisfy the waste and desolate land, and to make the ground put forth grass?
28 ‘Has the rain a father, or who has begotten the drops of dew?
31 ‘Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades, or loose the cords of Orion? 32 Can you lead forth the Mazzaroth in their season, or can you guide the Bear with its children?
33 Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you establish their rule on the earth?
36 Who has put wisdom in the inward parts, or given understanding to the mind? 37 Who has the wisdom to number the clouds?

O Lord, my God, when I in awestruck wonder consider all the worlds Thy hands have made;
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder, Thy power throughout the universe displayed;
Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee, “How great Thou art! How great Thou art!”
When through the woods and forest glade I wander, and hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees;
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur, and hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze;
Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee, “How great Thou art! How great Thou art!”
