PSALM 104:24-26

104:24 O LORD, how manifold are your works! In wisdom you have  made them all; the earth is full of your creatures.  104:25 Yonder is the sea, great and wide, creeping things innumerable  are there, living things both small and great. 104:26 There go the ships, and Leviathan that you formed to sport  in it.

ISAIAH 45:1-7, 18-19

45:1 Thus says the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right  hand I have grasped to subdue nations before him and strip  kings of their robes, to open doors before him-- and the  gates shall not be closed: 45:2 I will go before you and level the mountains, I will break  in pieces the doors of bronze and cut through the bars of  iron, 45:3 I will give you the treasures of darkness and riches hidden  in secret places, so that you may know that it is I, the  LORD, the God of Israel, who call you by your name. 45:4 For the sake of my servant Jacob, and Israel my chosen,  I call you by your name, I surname you, though you do not  know me. 45:5 I am the LORD, and there is no other; besides me there is  no god. I arm you, though you do not know me, 45:6 so that they may know, from the rising of the sun and from  the west, that there is no one besides me; I am the LORD,  and there is no other. 45:7 I form light and create darkness, I make weal and create woe; I the LORD do all these things.

45:18 For thus says the LORD, who created the heavens (he is God!),  who formed the earth and made it (he established it; he  did not create it a chaos, he formed it to be inhabited!):  I am the LORD, and there is no other. 45:19 I did not speak in secret, in a land of darkness; I did  not say to the offspring of Jacob, "Seek me in chaos." I  the LORD speak the truth, I declare what is right.

ACTS 1:15-17; 21-26

1:15 In those days Peter stood up among the believers (together  the crowd numbered about one hundred twenty persons) and  said, 1:16 "Friends, the scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy  Spirit through David foretold concerning Judas, who became  a guide for those who arrested Jesus-- 1:17 for he was numbered among us and was allotted his share  in this ministry."

1:21 So one of the men who have accompanied us during all the  time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, 1:22 beginning from the baptism of John until the day when he  was taken up from us--one of these must become a witness  with us to his resurrection." 1:23 So they proposed two, Joseph called Barsabbas, who was also  known as Justus, and Matthias. 1:24 Then they prayed and said, "Lord, you know everyone's heart.  Show us which one of these two you have chosen 1:25 to take the place in this ministry and apostleship from  which Judas turned aside to go to his own place." 1:26 And they cast lots for them, and the lot fell on Matthias;  and he was added to the eleven apostles.
