4 “Where were you when I ulaid the foundation of the earth?
Tell me, if you have understanding.
Or who stretched the line upon it?
or who laid its cornerstone,
7 when the morning stars vsang together
8 “Or who yshut in the sea with doors
when it burst out from the womb,
and zthick darkness its swaddling band,
10 and prescribed alimits for it
and set bars and doors,
and here shall your bproud waves be stayed’?
12 “Have you ccommanded the morning since your days began,
and caused the dawn to know its place,
13 that it might take hold of dthe skirts of the earth,
and the wicked be eshaken out of it?
and its features stand out like a garment.
15 From the wicked their flight is withheld,
and gtheir uplifted arm is broken.
16 “Have you hentered into the springs of the sea,
or walked in the recesses of the deep?
17 Have ithe gates of death been revealed to you,
or have you seen the gates of jdeep darkness?
Declare, if you know all this.
