Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? Tell me, if you understand...
On what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone—
While the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy?
Who shut up the sea behind doors when it burst forth from the womb...
When I fixed limits for it and set its doors and bars in place,
When I said, ‘This far you may come and no farther;
Here is where your proud waves halt’?
- Job 38:4, 6-8, 10-11
