4 “Where were you awhen I laid the foundation of the earth?

Tell Me, if you 1have understanding,

And all the asons of God shouted for joy?

8 “Or who aenclosed the sea with doors

When, bursting forth, it went out from the womb;

9 When I made a cloud its garment

And thick darkness its swaddling band,

10 And I 1aplaced boundaries on it

And set a bolt and doors,

And here shall your proud waves stop’?
