Proverbs 8:22-31

RSV 22 The LORD created me at the beginning of his work, the first of his acts of old. NIV 22 "The LORD brought me forth as the first of his works, before his deeds of old; RSV 23 Ages ago I was set up, at the first, before the beginning of the earth. NIV 23 I was appointed from eternity, from the beginning, before the world began. RSV 24 When there were no depths I was brought forth, when there were no springs abounding with water. NIV 24 When there were no oceans, I was given birth, when there were no springs abounding with water; RSV 25 Before the mountains had been shaped, before the hills, I was brought forth; NIV 25 before the mountains were settled in place, before the hills, I was given birth, RSV 26 before he had made the earth with its fields, or the first of the dust of the world. NIV 26 before he made the earth or its fields or any of the dust of the world. RSV 27 When he established the heavens, I was there, when he drew a circle on the face of the deep, NIV 27 I was there when he set the heavens in place, when he marked out the horizon on the face of the deep, RSV 28 when he made firm the skies above, when he established the fountains of the deep, NIV 28 when he established the clouds above and fixed securely the fountains of the deep, RSV 29 when he assigned to the sea its limit, so that the waters might not transgress his command, when he marked out the foundations of the earth, NIV 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. RSV 30 then I was beside him, like a master workman; and I was daily his delight, rejoicing before him always, NIV 30 Then I was the craftsman at his side. I was filled with delight day after day, rejoicing always in his presence, RSV 31 rejoicing in his inhabited world and delighting in the sons of men. NIV 31 rejoicing in his whole world and delighting in mankind.
