“Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?(A)
    Tell me, if you understand.(B)
Who marked off its dimensions?(C) Surely you know!
    Who stretched a measuring line(D) across it?
On what were its footings set,(E)
    or who laid its cornerstone(F)
while the morning stars(G) sang together(H)
    and all the angels[a](I) shouted for joy?(J)

“Who shut up the sea behind doors(K)
    when it burst forth from the womb,(L)
when I made the clouds its garment
    and wrapped it in thick darkness,(M)
10 when I fixed limits for it(N)
    and set its doors and bars in place,(O)
11 when I said, ‘This far you may come and no farther;(P)
    here is where your proud waves halt’?(Q)
