and calls forth each of them by name.
Because of his great power and mighty strength,
not one of them is missing.

Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad;
let the sea resound, and all that is in it.
Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them;
let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.
— Psalm 96:11-12
Listen to this, Job;
stop and consider God’s wonders.

and makes his lightning flash?
Do you know how the clouds hang poised,
those wonders of him who has perfect knowledge?

the jackals and the owls,
because I provide water in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland,
to give drink to my people, my chosen,

In wisdom you made them all;
the earth is full of your creatures.

teeming with creatures beyond number—
living things both large and small.
— Psalm 104:24-25
“But ask the animals, and they will teach you,
or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you;

Which of all these does not know
that the hand of the Lord has done this?
In his hand is the life of every creature
and the breath of all mankind.

the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
