Where Were You When I Laid the

Foundations of the Earth

                                                                Job 38:4


    Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind: who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?  Gird up your loins like a man, I will question you, and you shall declare to me.


    Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?


    Tell me, if you have understanding, who determined its measurements - surely you know!  Or who stretched the line upon it?  On what were its bases sunk, or who laid its cornerstone, when the morning stars sang together, and all the Sons of God shouted for joy?


                                                                                            Job 38:1-7
