Third Millennium Bible w/ Apocrypha (TMBA) New International Version (NIV)
22 "The LORD possessed me at the beginning of His way, before His works of old. 22 "The LORD brought me forth as the first of his works, before his deeds of old;
23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. 23 I was appointed from eternity, from the beginning, before the world began.
24 When there were no depths I was brought forth, when there were no fountains abounding with water. 24 When there were no oceans, I was given birth, when there were no springs abounding with water;
25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth, 25 before the mountains were settled in place, before the hills, I was given birth,
26 while as yet He had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the first parts of dust of the world. 26 before he made the earth or its fields or any of the dust of the world.
27 When He prepared the heavens, I was there; when He set a compass upon the face of the deep, 27 I was there when he set the heavens in place, when he marked out the horizon on the face of the deep,
28 when He established the clouds above, when He strengthened the fountains of the deep, 28 when he established the clouds above and fixed securely the fountains of the deep,
29 when He gave to the sea His decree that the waters should not pass His commandment, when He appointed the foundations of the earth" 29 when he gave the sea its boundary so the waters would not overstep his command, and when he marked out the foundations of the earth.
30 then I was by Him, as one brought up with Him, and I was daily His delight, rejoicing always before Him, 30 Then I was the craftsman at his side. I was filled with delight day after day, rejoicing always in his presence,
31 rejoicing in the habitable part of His earth; and my delights were with the sons of men. 31 rejoicing in his whole world and delighting in mankind.
