The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire Bible

Psalms 104:5

Who laid the foundations of the earth
Or "founded the earth upon its bases" F12; which some take to be the waters, according to (Psalms 24:2) , others the centre of gravity in it; others the mountains; others the circumambient air, by which it is poised; rather the almighty power of God, by which it subsists; this is the work of Christ the Almighty; see (Hebrews 1:3,10) .

That it should not be removed for ever:
for though it may be shaken by earthquakes, yet not removed; nor will it be until the dissolution of all things, when it shall flee away before the face of the Judge, and a new earth shall succeed, (Revelation 20:11) (21:1) .


F12 (hynwkm le) "super bases ejus", Montanus, Musculus, Junius & Tremellius, Piscator; so the Tigurine version, Gejerus, Michaelis.
