“Where were you when I (A)laid the foundation of the earth?
    Tell me, if you have understanding.
Who determined its measurements—surely you know!
    Or who stretched the line upon it?
On what were its bases sunk,
    or who laid its cornerstone,
when the morning stars (B)sang together
    and all (C)the sons of God (D)shouted for joy?

“Or who (E)shut in the sea with doors
    when it burst out from the womb,
when I made clouds its garment
    and (F)thick darkness its swaddling band,
10 and prescribed (G)limits for it
    and set bars and doors,
11 and said, ‘Thus far shall you come, and no farther,
    and here shall your (H)proud waves be stayed’?

17 Have (B)the gates of death been revealed to you,
    or have you seen the gates of (C)deep darkness?
18 Have you comprehended the expanse of the earth?
    Declare, if you know all this.
