By the word1 of the LORD were the heavens made,2 their starry host3 by the breath of his mouth.
He gathers the waters4 of the sea into jarsa;5 he puts the deep into storehouses.
Let all the earth fear the LORD;6 let all the people of the world7 revere him.89
For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded,9 and it stood firm.
The LORD foils10 the plans11 of the nations;12 he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.
But the plans of the LORD stand firm13 forever, the purposes14 of his heart through all generations.
