54The Lord certainly knows everything that people do; he knows their imaginations and their thoughts and their hearts. 55He said, “Let the earth be made,” and it was made, and “Let the heaven be made,” and it was made. 56At his word the stars were fixed in their places, and he knows the number of the stars. 57He searches the abyss and its treasures; he has measured the sea and its contents; 58he has confined the sea in the midst of the waters; and by his word he has suspended the earth over the water. 59He has spread out the heaven like a dome and made it secure upon the waters; 60he has put springs of water in the desert, and pools on the tops of the mountains, so as to send rivers from the heights to water the earth. 61He formed human beings and put a heart in the midst of each body, and gave each person breath and life and understanding 62and the spirit of Almighty God, who surely made all things and searches out hidden things in hidden places.
