  • Job 38:8-11 CSB
    Who enclosed the sea behind doors
    when it burst from the womb,
    when I made the clouds its garment
    and total darkness its blanket,

    and put its bars and doors in place,
    when I declared, “You may come this far, but no farther;
    your proud waves stop here”?
  • Psalm 8:3-9 CSB
    When I observe your heavens,
    the work of your fingers,
    the moon and the stars,
    which you set in place,
     what is a human being that you remember him,
    a son of man that you look after him?
     You made him little less than God
    and crowned him with glory and honor.
    You made him ruler over the works of your hands
    you put everything under his feet:
    all the sheep and oxen,
    as well as the animals in the wild,
    the birds of the sky
    and the fish of the sea
    that pass through the currents of the seas.
    Lord, our Lord,
    how magnificent is your name throughout the earth!

    teeming with creatures beyond number—
    living things both large and small.
    There the ships move about,
    and Leviathan, which you formed to play there.
  • Psalm 107:28-30 CSB
    Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,
    and he brought them out of their distress.

    and the waves of the sea were hushed.
    They rejoiced when the waves grew quiet.
    Then he guided them to the harbor they longed for.
  • Psalm 139:9-10 NASB

    If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea
     Even there Your hand will lead me,
    And Your right hand will lay hold of me.

    I never realized there were so many verses about the ocean in the Bible. A friend on Facebook posted a short video with the sound of the ocean waves coming to shore. I imagined that while reading these verses. Thank you of this post.
