CAB(i) 22 The Lord made me the beginning of His ways for His works. 23 He established me in the beginning, before time was, before He made the earth. 24 Even before He made the depths, before the fountains of water came forth; 25 before the mountains were settled, and before all hills, He begot me. 26 The Lord made countries and uninhabited lands, and the highest inhabited parts of the world. 27 When He prepared the heaven, I was present with Him; and when He prepared His throne upon the winds; 28 and when He strengthened the clouds above, and when He secured the fountains of the earth; 29 and when He strengthened the foundations of the earth; 30 I was by Him, suiting myself to Him, I was that in which He took delight; and daily I rejoiced in His presence continually.
