otice the heavens, all ye children of heaven, and all the doings of the Most High, and have fear of him, and do no evil before him.
When he locks the windows of heaven, and prevents the rain and the dew from descending upon the earth on your account, what will ye do then?
And when he sends his anger over you and over all your deeds, ye cannot petition him, because ye have spoken concerning his justice proudly and boldly, and ye shall have no peace.
And do ye not see the kings of the ships, how their ships are chased about by waves, and tremble before the winds, and are troubled?
And therefore they fear, because all their good treasures go into the sea with them, and they are troubled in their hearts that the sea might swallow them and they perish in it.
Is not all the sea and all its waters and all its movements a work of the Most High, and has he not sealed all its doings, and bound it all in the sand?
It dries up at his threats, and is afraid, and all its fish die, and all that is in it; and ye sinners who are on the earth do not fear him.
Has he not made heaven and earth, and all that is in them? And who has given understanding and wisdom to all who move on the earth, and to those on the sea?
Do not the kings of the ships fear the sea? but the sinners do not fear the Most High.
