Before the mountains were settled,
before the hills were formed I was born; Bible see other translations

“settled.” The literal Hebrew is “sunk,” and while the word “sunk” may be misleading to English readers who think of the mountains standing high above the earth, in fact, the mountains are “sunk” into the earth’s mantle as any geologist will testify. Thus, this verse is one more proof that God is the Author behind the Scripture. No human knew the mountains were sunk into the earth, but God knew it because He did it.
