The (A)dead tremble
    under the waters and their inhabitants.
Sheol is (B)naked before God,[a]
    and (C)Abaddon has no covering.
He (D)stretches out the north over (E)the void
    and hangs the earth on nothing.
He (F)binds up the waters in his thick clouds,
    and the cloud is not split open under them.
He covers the face of the full moon[b]
    and (G)spreads over it his cloud.
10 He has inscribed (H)a circle on the face of the waters
    at the boundary between light and darkness.
11 (I)The pillars of heaven tremble
    and are astounded at his (J)rebuke.
