The Lord, the LORD Almighty, he who touches the earth and it melts,1 and all who live in it mourn-- the whole land rises like the Nile, then sinks like the river of Egypt2--
he who builds his lofty palace3 in the heavens and sets its foundation on the earth, who calls for the waters of the sea and pours them out over the face of the land-- the LORD is his name.4
