The realm of the dead(A) is naked before God;
    Destruction[a](B) lies uncovered.(C)
He spreads out the northern skies(D) over empty space;
    he suspends the earth over nothing.(E)
He wraps up the waters(F) in his clouds,(G)
    yet the clouds do not burst under their weight.
He covers the face of the full moon,
    spreading his clouds(H) over it.

11 The pillars of the heavens quake,(K)
    aghast at his rebuke.
12 By his power he churned up the sea;(L)
    by his wisdom(M) he cut Rahab(N) to pieces.
13 By his breath the skies(O) became fair;
    his hand pierced the gliding serpent.(P)
