Job 38:3-5 American Standard Version (ASV)

Gird up now thy loins like a man;
For I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.
Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?
Declare, [a]if thou hast understanding.
Who determined the measures thereof, [b]if thou knowest?
Or who stretched the line upon it?

Job 38:3-5 New International Version (NIV)

Brace yourself like a man;
    I will question you,
    and you shall answer me.

“Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?
    Tell me, if you understand.
Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know!
    Who stretched a measuring line across it?
