Have you traveled to the sources of the sea
or walked in the depths of the oceans?
The floods covered them;
they sank to the depths like a stone.
You threw me into the depths,
into the heart of the seas,
and the current overcame me.
All Your breakers and Your billows swept over me.
Am I the sea or a sea monster,
that You keep me under guard?
when water becomes as hard as stone,
and the surface of the watery depths is frozen?
Deep calls to deep in the roar of Your waterfalls;
all Your breakers and Your billows have swept over me.
who says to the depths of the sea, “Be dry,”
and I will dry up your rivers;
Wasn’t it You who dried up the sea,
the waters of the great deep,
who made the sea-bed into a road
for the redeemed to pass over?
The mountains see You and shudder;
a downpour of water sweeps by.
The deep roars with its voice
and lifts its waves high.
“But whoever causes the downfall of one of these little ones who believe in Me—it would be better for him if a heavy millstone were hung around his neck and he were drowned in the depths of the sea!
When He had finished speaking, He said to Simon, “Put out into deep water and let down your nets for a catch.”
