It is he that buildeth his stories in the heaven, and hath founded his troop in the earth; he that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

Furthermore, He later poured all the waters of the sea over all the earth, at the great Flood. It is He who is now judging them, as though they were His enemies, instead of His chosen people.
