Psalms 147:4, The Names of the Stars

He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.

//This is why mathematicians get a headache when they read the Bible. If we estimate 100 billion galaxies of 100 billion stars each, that’s a lot of stars to know by name!

They’re big names to remember, too. If you create random names from letters, half vowels and half consonants, you’ll need star names 19 letters long to name them all. And God’s calls them all by name? If he started at the beginning of the universe 13.7 billion years ago, and pronounced 2,300 19-letter star names every second, he’d be about caught up.

Now you know why it’s so hard to understand when God speaks. Nobody can listen as fast as he talks.
