"Or speak to the earth, and let it teach you; And let the fish of the sea declare to you.
"Behold, my eye has seen all this, My ear has heard and understood it.
That they may see and recognize, And consider and gain insight as well, That the hand of the LORD has done this, And the Holy One of Israel has created it.
