Springs of the Sea

“Or who shut in the sea with doors
when it burst out from the womb,
 when I made clouds its garment
and thick darkness its swaddling band,
 and prescribed limits for it
and set bars and doors,
 and said, ‘Thus far shall you come, and no farther,
and here shall your proud waves be stayed’?”

– Job 38:8-11

“Have you entered into the springs of the sea,
or walked in the recesses of the deep?
 Have the gates of death been revealed to you,
or have you seen the gates of deep darkness?
 Have you comprehended the expanse of the earth?
Declare, if you know all this.”

– Job 38:16-18

Do you not fear me? declares the Lord.
Do you not tremble before me?
I placed the sand as the boundary for the sea,
a perpetual barrier that it cannot pass;
though the waves toss, they cannot prevail;
though they roar, they cannot pass over it.

– Jeremiah 5:22
