In whose hand is the life of every living thing,
And the breath of all mankind?
"In whose hand..."
"My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;
and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish;
and no one will snatch them out of My hand.
"My Father, who has given them to Me,
is greater than all;
and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand.
"I and the Father are one."
"... is the life of every living thing,"
"The God who made the world and all things in it,
since He is Lord of heaven and earth,
does not dwell in temples made with hands;
nor is He served by human hands,
as though He needed anything,
since He Himself gives to all people
life and breath and all things;
and He made from one man every nation of mankind
to live on all the face of the earth,
having determined their appointed times
and the boundaries of their habitation,
that they would seek God,
if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him,
though He is not far from each one of us;
for in Him we live and move and exist,
as even some of your own poets have said,
'For we also are His children.'
"...and the breath of all mankind."
Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground,
and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life;
and man became a living being.
By the word of the LORD the heavens were made,
And by the breath of His mouth all their host.
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.
Praise the LORD!
