Or who stretched the line upon it?
Whereupon were the [c]foundations thereof [d]fastened?
Or who laid the corner-stone thereof,

Job 38:4-6 New International Version (NIV)

“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?
On what were its footings set,
    or who laid its cornerstone
