4. He maketh his angels spirits : and his ministers a flaming fire.

5. He laid the foundations of the earth : that it never should move at any time.

6. Thou coveredst it with the deep like as with a garment : the waters stand in the hills.

8. They go up as high as the hills, and down to the valleys beneath : even unto the place which thou hast appointed for them.

24. O LORD, how manifold are thy works : in wisdom hast thou made them all; the earth is full of thy riches.
