Proverbs 8:22-31

NSB(i) 22 »Jehovah created me in the beginning of his way, before his works of antiquity. 23 »I was made from long ago, before the earth began. 24 »When there were no depths or fountains abounding with water, I was brought forth. 25 »Before the mountains were settled, before the hills I was brought forth: 26 »He had not made the earth or the fields or the highest part of the dust of the world. 27 »When he prepared the heavens, I was there. When he circled the face of the deep: 28 »When he established the clouds above, when he strengthened the fountains of the deep, 29 »When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his command, when he appointed the foundations of the earth, 30 »Then I was beside him, as a master workman with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him. 31 »I rejoiced in the inhabited earth. My delights were with the sons of men.
