15 It is 1He who made the earth by His power, Who established the world by His wisdom, And by His understanding He 2stretched out the heavens.
16 When He utters His 3voice, there is a tumult of waters in the heavens, And He causes the 4clouds to ascend from the end of the earth; He makes lightning for the rain And brings forth the 5wind from His storehouses.
