Wisdom Secured The Setting Of Boundaries
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.
Proverbs Club Commentary
The Lord set the heavens in place,
and the deep, and the clouds, and the sea,
and the foundations of the earth.
And He used Wisdom to secure it.
First Born Birth Of Wisdom
24 When there were no watery depths, I was given birth,
when there were no springs overflowing with water;
25 before the mountains were settled in place,
before the hills, I was given birth,
26 before he made the world or its fields
or any of the dust of the earth.
Wisdom was born before:
dust of the earth

before his deeds of old;
23 I was formed long ages ago,
at the very beginning, when the world came to be.
The Lord brought forth wisdom
when He created the world.
