New Living Translation
Who but God goes up to heaven and comes back down? Who holds the wind in his fists? Who wraps up the oceans in his cloak? Who has created the whole wide world? What is his name--and his son's name? Tell me if you know!

CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
30:4 Who - What mere man? None at all. Ascended - To learn the mind of God who dwells there. Descended - To teach men below what he had learned above. No man can fully know and teach us these things unless he hath been in heaven, and sent down from thence to the earth for that end. In his fists - To hold them in, or let them out at his pleasure? And none but he who made and governs all creatures, can know and teach these things. The waters - Those above the clouds, and those below, the sea which God keeps as it were within doors, and the water which he shuts up in the bowels of the earth. The earth - The whole earth from one end to another, which God upholdeth in the air, by the word of his power. If - If thou thinkest there be any man who can do these things, produce his name; or if he be dead, the name of any of his posterity.

No one has ever gone to heaven and returned. But the Son of Man has come down from heaven.
That is why the Scriptures say, "When he ascended to the heights, he led a crowd of captives and gave gifts to his people."
His eyes were like flames of fire, and on his head were many crowns. A name was written on him that no one understood except himself.
But you blew with your breath, and the sea covered them. They sank like lead in the mighty waters.
He wraps the rain in his thick clouds, and the clouds don't burst with the weight.
