For, the earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it.
For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
(Colossians 1:16– 17)(emphasis added)
The heavens are yours, and yours also the earth; you founded the world and all that is in it.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
(John 1:1- 5)
He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.
