compassed

Job 26:10

26:10 compassed. The word “compassed” is the Hebrew khug, translated “circle” in Isaiah 40:22 (see also Proverbs 8:27). It refers here to the global sea level, which defines the “circle of the earth” and the “compass upon the face of the depth,” and which defines the bounds which the waters cannot transgress as long as the earth endures, in accordance with the Noahic covenant (Genesis 8:22; 9:11).
