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
and fixed securely the fountains of the deep,
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.
When the Lord set to work, wisdom was at his side. Nothing was established without her; the arrangement of the heavens, the curvature of the horizon, the clouds above and the fountains below, the shores and depths of the seas, and the very foundations of the earth. The Lord honors wisdom in everything he does, can we say the same of ourselves?
