How manifold are your works!
You have made them all.
The earth is full of your creatures.
Yonder is the great wide sea.
Innumerable creeping things are there.
There are living things,
Both small and great.
There go the ships!
There is Leviathan
That you formed to play sport with it.”
The works of Yahweh are marvelous. Yahweh created all these things out of wisdom. The earth is full of all Yahweh’s creatures. Then the psalmist turned to the seas and how great and wide they are. However, he then talked about the innumerable living things, both great and small in the sea. Even today, we are still just beginning to understand all the living creatures in the seas. Of course, there were the ships that transported goods and people around. However, there also was the great sea monster Leviathan. Interesting enough here it is considered some kind of sport rather than a menace as outlined in Job, chapter 41.
