The word "compassed" is the Hebrew khug, translated "circle" in Isaiah 40:22. It refers here to the global sea level, which defines the "circle of the earth" (Isaiah 40:22) and the "compass upon the face of the depth" (Proverbs 8:27), and which defines the bounds which the waters cannot transgress as long as the earth endures, in accordance with the Noahic covenant (Genesis 8:22; 9:11).
