Proverbs 8:28-29

Context

8:28 when he established the clouds above,

when the fountains of the deep grew strong, 1 

8:29 when he gave the sea his decree

that the waters should not pass over his command, 2 

when he marked out the foundations of the earth,

1 tn To form a better parallel some commentators read this infinitive בַּעֲזוֹז (baazoz), “when [they] grew strong,” as a Piel causative, “when he made firm, fixed fast” (cf. NIV “fixed securely”; NLT “established”). But the following verse (“should not pass over”) implies the meaning “grew strong” here.

2 tn Heb “his mouth.”
