6 Into what have its socket pedestals been sunk down, Or who laid its cornerstone, 7 When the morning stars joyfully cried out together, And all the sons of God began shouting in applause? 8 And [who] barricaded the sea with doors, Which began to go forth as when it burst out from the womb; 9 When I put the cloud as its garment And thick gloom as its swaddling band, 10 And I proceeded to break up my regulation upon it And to set a bar and doors, 11 And I went on to say, ‘This far you may come, and no farther; And here your proud waves are limited’? 12 Was it from your days onward that you commanded the morning? Did you cause the dawn to know its place, 13 To take hold on the extremities of the earth, That the wicked ones might be shaken out from it? 14 It transforms itself like clay under a seal, And things take their station as in clothing. 15 And from the wicked ones their light is held back, And the high arm itself gets broken. 16 Have you come to the sources of the sea, Or in search of the watery deep have you walked about? 17 Have the gates of death been uncovered to you, Or the gates of deep shadow can you see? 18 Have you intelligently considered the broad spaces of the earth? Tell, if you have come to know it all. 19 Where, now, is the way to where light resides? As for darkness, where, now, is its place, 20 That you should take it to its boundary And that you should understand the roadways to its house?
