4 He sees the number of the stars; he gives them all their names. 4 He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.
5 Great is our Lord, and great his power; there is no limit to his wisdom. 5 Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit.
6 The Lord gives help to the poor in spirit; but he sends sinners down in shame. 6 The LORD sustains the humble but casts the wicked to the ground.
