Proverbs 8:22-30

Leeser(i) 22 The Lord created me as the beginning of his way, the first of his works from the commencement, 23 From eternity was I appointed chief, from the beginning, from the earliest times of the earth. 24 When there were yet no depths, was I brought forth; when there were yet no springs laden heavily with water. 25 Before the mountains were yet sunk down, before the hills was I brought forth: 26 While as yet he had not made the land and open fields, nor the chief of the dust of the world. 27 When he prepared the heavens, I was there; when he drew a circle over the face of the deep; 28 When he fastened the skies above; when the springs of the deep became strong; 29 When he assigned to the sea his decree, that the waters should not transgress his order: when he established firmly the foundations of the earth: 30 Then was I near him, as a nursling: and I was day by day his delights, playing before him at all times;
