In his hand are the deep places of the earth
The "penetrals" F3 of it; not only what are penetrated by men, the minerals that are in it; but what are of such deep recess as to be penetrated only by the Lord himself; these are in the hands and power of Christ, which he can search into, discover, and dispose of; these are the foundations of the earth, which cannot be searched out beneath by men, ( Jeremiah 31:37 ) ,
the strength of the hills is his also;
or, "the wearinesses" F4 of them, the tops F5 of them, which make a man weary to go up unto, they are so high; the Targum is,
``the strengths of the height of the hills;''which takes in both ideas, both the height and strength of them. The hills, that are both high and strong, are set fast by his power, and are at his command; and bow and tremble before him, whom men ought to worship.
