It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth; you made both summer and winter.
You have established all the boundaries of the earth; You have made summer and winter.
You set the boundaries of the earth, and you make both summer and winter.
You laid out the four corners of earth, shaped the seasons of summer and winter.
By you all the limits of the earth were fixed; you have made summer and winter.
You have fixed all the bounds of the earth; you made summer and winter.
You have set all the borders of the earth; You have made summer and winter.

1 tn This would appear to refer to geographical boundaries, such as mountains, rivers, and seacoasts. However, since the day-night cycle has just been mentioned (v. 16) and the next line speaks of the seasons, it is possible that “boundaries” here refers to the divisions of the seasons. See C. A. Briggs and E. G. Briggs, Psalms (ICC), 2:156.
2 tn Heb “summer and winter, you, you formed them.”
