Proverbs 8:28

When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:
– Proverbs 8:28

Establishing and strengthening here refer to making firm or secure. God has put the waters above and below in their place (Job 26:8). Not only were they brought into existence by wisdom, but they are sustained and governed by wisdom. They work as God designed by wisdom to fulfill their purpose. By extension, so ought we to be governed by wisdom.
