New International Version
5 He set the earth(A) on its foundations;(B)
it can never be moved.
6 You covered it(C) with the watery depths(D) as with a garment;
the waters stood(E) above the mountains.
7 But at your rebuke(F) the waters fled,
at the sound of your thunder(G) they took to flight;
8 they flowed over the mountains,
they went down into the valleys,
to the place you assigned(H) for them.
9 You set a boundary(I) they cannot cross;
never again will they cover the earth.
