New International Version
He alone stretches out the heavens and treads on the waves of the sea.
King James Bible
Which alone spreadeth out the heavens, and treadeth upon the waves of the sea.
Darby Bible Translation
Who alone spreadeth out the heavens, and treadeth upon the high waves of the sea;
World English Bible
He alone stretches out the heavens, and treads on the waves of the sea.
Young's Literal Translation
Stretching out the heavens by Himself, And treading on the heights of the sea,
Job 9:8 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
And treadeth upon the waves - This is a very majestic image. God not only walks upon the waters, but when the sea runs mountains high, he steps from billow to billow in his almighty and essential majesty. There is a similar sentiment in David, Psalm 29:10 : "The Lord sitteth upon the flood; yea, the Lord sitteth King for ever." But both are far outdone by the Psalmist, Psalm 18:9-15, and especially in these words, Psalm 18:10, He did fly on the wings of the wind. Job is great, but in every respect David is greater.

In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up: in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.--Man that is born of a woman …

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
He spreads out the northern skies over empty space; he suspends the earth over nothing.
By his breath the skies became fair; his hand pierced the gliding serpent.
can you join him in spreading out the skies, hard as a mirror of cast bronze?
"Have you journeyed to the springs of the sea or walked in the recesses of the deep?
Your path led through the sea, your way through the mighty waters, though your footprints were not seen.
The LORD wraps himself in light as with a garment; he stretches out the heavens like a tent
