Proverbs 8:22-30

ERV(i) 22 The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old 23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was 24 When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water 25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth 26 While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the beginning of the dust of the world 27 When he established the heavens, I was there: when he set a circle upon the face of the deep 28 When he made firm the sides above: when the fountains of the deep became strong 29 When he gave to the sea its bound, that the waters should not transgress his commandment: when he marked out the foundations of the earth 30 Then I was by him, [as] a master workman: and I was daily [his] delight, rejoicing always before him
