Ocean Currents

Motion in the Ocean

The wind blows to the south and goes around to the north;
around and around goes the wind,
and on its circuits the wind returns.
All streams run to the sea,
but the sea is not full;
to the place where the streams flow,
there they flow again.

Ecclesiastes 1:6-7 (ESV)
