and saying, "Men, why are you doing these things? We are also men of the same nature as you, and preach the gospel to you that you should turn from these vain things to a living God, WHO MADE THE HEAVEN AND THE EARTH AND THE SEA AND ALL THAT IS IN THEM.
and he said with a loud voice, "Fear God, and give Him glory, because the hour of His judgment has come; worship Him who made the heaven and the earth and sea and springs of waters."
God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas; and God saw that it was good.
The sea is His, for it was He who made it, And His hands formed the dry land.
May you be blessed of the LORD, Maker of heaven and earth.
For His lovingkindness is great toward us, And the truth of the LORD is everlasting. Praise the LORD!
