The Nations

Here we are, shoulder to shoulder or far away in distant lands. 

Millions, billions of us, here, there, and everywhere. 

How many of us are there? Here are just a few of the nations. 

Are these population numbers what you would have guessed? 

I was particularly surprised by Japan. It's so small, 

but like a tiny seed man grows and fills God's green Earth.

China   1,412,600,000

India   1,352,642,280

EU   447,007,596

USA   331,893,745

Russia   145,824,556

Japan   125,502,000

Israel   9,506,100

For as the earth brings forth its sprouts, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to sprout up, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to sprout up before all the nations. Isaiah 61:11


  1. Yikes!! And the saddest part of all is that most of us can't even get along!!

  2. Yes we are! Thank you for this lovely post.

  3. Wow - these numbers surprise me too.

  4. wow China and India - that's a lot of people!

  5. That's amazing Sandi. Seeing it all written down like this, put's it all in perspective. Thank you!

  6. That number for Japan is quite surprising considering how big Russia is and how close they are to that population.

  7. That's very interesting, Sandi. I've never really looked at the population stats before.
