World English Bible
You have set a boundary that they may not pass over; that they don't turn again to cover the earth.

The above, not these, are the bounds which it cannot pass, so that they cannot turn again to cover the earth.

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.
Should you not fear me?" declares the LORD. "Should you not tremble in my presence? I made the sand a boundary for the sea, an everlasting barrier it cannot cross. The waves may roll, but they cannot prevail; they may roar, but they cannot cross it.
