Young's Literal Translation
Hast thou come in to springs of the sea? And in searching the deep Hast thou walked up and down?

Now the springs of the deep and the floodgates of the heavens had been closed, and the rain had stopped falling from the sky.
He alone stretches out the heavens and treads on the waves of the sea.
When there were no watery depths, I was given birth, when there were no springs overflowing with water;
when he established the clouds above and fixed securely the fountains of the deep,
