Psalm 104:14 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Psalm 104:8 continues with the words אל־מקום (cf. Genesis 1:9, אחד אל־מקום): the waters retreat to the place which (זה, cf. Psalm 104:26, for אשׁר, Genesis 39:20) God has assigned to them as that which should contain them. He hath set a bound (גּבוּל, synon. חק, Proverbs 8:29; Jeremiah 5:22) for them beyond which they may not flow forth again to cover the earth, as the primordial waters of chaos have done.
