New American Standard Bible
4 Where were you (A)when I laid the foundation of the earth?
Tell Me, if you [a]have understanding,
5 Who set its (B)measurements? Since you know.
Or who stretched the measuring line over it?
6 On what (C)were its bases sunk?
Or who laid its cornerstone,
7 When the morning stars sang together
And all the (D)sons of God shouted for joy?
8 “Or who (E)enclosed the sea with doors
When it went out from the womb, bursting forth;
9 When I made a cloud its garment,
And thick darkness its swaddling bands,
10 And I [b](F)placed boundaries on it
And set a bolt and doors,
11 And I said, ‘As far as this point you shall come, but no farther;
And here your proud waves shall stop’?
