“Have you entered into the springs of the sea?
Have you walked in the recesses of the deep?
Have the gates of death been revealed to you?
Have you seen the gates of deep darkness?
Have you comprehended the expanse of the earth?
Do you know all this?”
The depths of the seas were considered dark. Some were not sure that there was a bottom to the sea. Did Job know anything about the gates to death? Did he know anything about how wide or deep the earth was? If Job did not know this, he should.
