Proverbs 8:22-30

Rotherham(i) 22 Yahweh, had constituted me the beginning of his way, before his works, at the commencement of that time; 23 At the outset of the ages, had I been established, in advance of the antiquities of the earth; 24 When there was no resounding deep, I had been brought forth, when there were no fountains, abounding with water; 25 Ere yet the mountains had been settled, before the hills, had I been brought forth; 26 Or ever he had made the land and the wastes, or the top of the dry parts of the world: 27 When he prepared the heavens, there, was I! When he decreed a vault upon the face of the resounding deep; 28 When he made firm the skies above, when the fountains of the resounding deep, waxed strong; 29 When he fixed for the sea its bound, that, the waters, should not go beyond his bidding, when he decreed the foundations of the earth:— 30 Then became I beside him, a firm and sure worker, then became I filled with delight, day by day, exulting before him on every occasion;
