Do these…
Tell the sun to rise
And make it obey your command
Compute how large the earth is
And make it known to people
Send torrents of rain on empty desserts
And make it obey your command
Finds out how the sleets and frost form
And fall in winter when the streams and lakes are frozen
Arrange the stars in groups such as Orion and Pleiades
Control the stars or set in place the Big Dipper and the Little Dipper
Know the rules of that governs the heaven
Rule the earth afterwards
Help the hungry lions hunt for their food
Set wild donkeys free
And help them survive in salty desert sand
Make the wild ox agree to live in your barn
And let it agree to work for you
Make horses jump like grasshoppers
Teach hawks to fly south for winter
Show your furious anger
Catch sea monster using a fishhook
Let it beg for mercy
Shake the earth with thunder
Throw down and crush all who are proud and evil
Command the world alone
And make them obey your command
Are you powerful enough?
I am not, I know who is...
My GOD is!

(Inspired from the Book of Job 38,39,40,41 CEV)

Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
