4 "Where were you at my laying the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you possess understanding. 5 Who determined its measurement? Yes, you do know. Or who stretched the measuring line upon it? 6 On what were its bases sunk?

Have you made the dawn know its place, 13 to take hold of the earth's skirts so that* the wicked might be shaken off from it? 14 It is changed like clay under a seal, and they appear like a garment. 15 And their light is withheld from the wicked, and their uplifted arm is broken. 16 "Have you entered into the sea's sources?
