The Gates of Death


Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea?
or hast thou walked in the search of the depth?isle of the dead

Hast thou perceived the breadth of the earth?
Have the gates of death been opened unto thee?

or hast thou seen the doors of the shadow of death?
declare if thou knowest it all.

Where is the way where light dwelleth?
and as for darkness, where is the place thereof,

That thou shouldest take it to the bound thereof,
and that thou shouldest know the paths
to the house thereof?

Knowest thou it, because thou wast then born?
or because the number of thy days is great?

[Job 38:16-21 KJV]
