When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:
– Proverbs 8:29
God separated the waters from the dry land (Genesis 1:9; Jeremiah 5:22), hence he gave the sea a boundary it should not pass. This was by decree and commandment, which were made in wisdom. Foundations refer to the structural integrity and fixedness of the earth. Though hanging on nothing (Job 26:7), it is fixed in place by God’s appointment. Job, along with all the rest of us, wasn’t there when God did this and so we are not wiser than wisdom (Job 38:4).
