Sirach 24:5-6

5 I alone encircled the vault of heaven and walked in the depths of abysses.
6 In the waves of the sea and in every land, and among every people and nation, I led the way.

Sirach 24:5-6 In-Context

3 “I came forth from the mouth of the Most High, and I covered the earth like a mist.
4 I lived in the heights, and my throne was in a pillar of cloud.
5 I alone encircled the vault of heaven and walked in the depths of abysses.
6 In the waves of the sea and in every land, and among every people and nation, I led the way.
7 I sought a resting place among all of these. In whose allotted territory should I make my home?
8 “Then the creator of all things gave me a command; the one who created me pitched my tent and said, ‘Make your dwelling in Jacob, and let Israel receive your inheritance.'
