Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; [and] caused the dayspring to know his place;
The lion's whelps have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion passed by it.
That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?
It is turned as clay [to] the seal; and they stand as a garment.
And from the wicked their light is withholden, and the high arm shall be broken.
Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the depth?
Have the gates of death been opened unto thee? or hast thou seen the doors of the shadow of death?
Hast thou perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if thou knowest it all.
The sea [is] his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry [land].
[Who] laid the foundations of the earth, [that] it should not be removed for ever.
Thou coveredst it with the deep as [with] a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.
At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away.
They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them.
Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.
When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:
And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?
And brake up for it my decreed [place], and set bars and doors,
And God called the dry [land] Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that [it was] good.
He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, [and] hangeth the earth upon nothing.
He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end.
He putteth forth his hand upon the rock; he overturneth the mountains by the roots.
He cutteth out rivers among the rocks; and his eye seeth every precious thing.
He bindeth the floods from overflowing; and [the thing that is] hid bringeth he forth to light.
Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.
Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?
Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;
When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
Or [who] shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, [as if] it had issued out of the womb?
When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it,
To him that stretched out the earth above the waters: for his mercy [endureth] for ever.
And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry [land] appear: and it was so.
Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what [is] his name, and what [is] his son's name, if thou canst tell?
