Heaven, Earth, Sea

Peter Leithart points out a Heaven/Earth/Waters triple that shows up all over the place.

See creation.

Here is a part of the Psalm reading from my classes today. I noticed this only because of his pointing it out. It is from the famous

Psalm 73: Surely God is Good to Israel // I envied the arrogant

..9 Their mouths lay claim to heaven,
and their tongues take possession of the earth.

..10 Therefore their people turn to them
and drink up waters in abundance.


I noticed that the ESV doesn’t use the “water” phrase. I wonder what this means for the triple. Or what the triple means for the ESV.
