Job 38: 8 - 11“Or who shut in the sea with doors,
When it burst forth and issued from the womb;
When I made the clouds its garment,

And set bars and doors;
When I said,
‘This far you may come, but no farther,
And here your proud waves must stop!’
Proverbs 8: 27 - 29When He prepared the heavens, I was there,

So that the waters would not transgress His command,
When He marked out the foundations of the earth,

And you waters above the heavens!

His wonders among all peoples.

Honor and majesty are before Him;
Strength and gladness are in His place.
