Job 38:4–6; Psalm 24:2; Psalm 102:25; Psalm 104:5

Where were you when I ulaid the foundation of the earth?

Tell me, if you have understanding.

Who determined its measurementssurely you know!

Or who stretched the line upon it?

On what were its bases sunk,

or who laid its cornerstone,

for he has wfounded it upon xthe seas

and established it upon the rivers.

25  qOf old you laid the foundation of the earth,

and rthe heavens are the work of your hands.

He xset the earth on its foundations,

so that it should never be moved.
