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

at the very beginning, when the world came to be.
The Lord brought forth wisdom
when He created the world.

and making their treasuries full.
New International Version (NIV)
Walking in the way of righteousness,
on the paths of justice,
