when he gave the sea its boundary so the waters would not overstep his command, and when he marked out the foundations of the earth.
Generations come and generations go, but the earth remains forever.
"Hear, you mountains, the LORD's accusation; listen, you everlasting foundations of the earth. For the LORD has a case against his people; he is lodging a charge against Israel.
