New International Version
Should you not fear me?" declares the LORD. "Should you not tremble in my presence? I made the sand a boundary for the sea, an everlasting barrier it cannot cross. The waves may roll, but they cannot prevail; they may roar, but they cannot cross it.
King James Bible
Fear ye not me? saith the LORD: will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it?
Darby Bible Translation

World English Bible

Young's Literal Translation
Me do ye not fear, an affirmation of Jehovah? From My presence are ye not pained? Who hath made sand the border of the sea, A limit age-during, and it passeth not over it, They shake themselves, and they are not able, Yea, sounded have its billows, and they pass not over.

And God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear." And it was so.
If you do not carefully follow all the words of this law, which are written in this book, and do not revere this glorious and awesome name--the LORD your God--
"Who shut up the sea behind doors when it burst forth from the womb,
when I fixed limits for it and set its doors and bars in place,
though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
You set a boundary they cannot cross; never again will they cover the earth.
