By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.
He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

33:6 breath of his mouth. The vast spaces of the cosmos, with all their innumerable stars and galaxies, were called into existence instantaneously by the omnipotent Word of Christ (John 1:3). God did not use processes of stellar evolution for this purpose. If such processes could account for the universe, then God would be redundant. The Genesis account records seventeen occasions of God speaking. Note also Hebrews 11:3, II Peter 3:5, etc.

33:7 gathereth the waters. The all-pervasive waters in the initial created cosmos were “gathered together” (Genesis 1:9) into two great reservoirs, above and below the firmament of the atmosphere respectively (Genesis 1:7).

33:7 the depth. “Depth” is the same as “deep” (Genesis 1:2).
