Beside the gates, at the entry of the city,
At the coming in at the doors, she crieth aloud:

When there were no fountains abounding with water.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 8:25 -
Before the mountains were settled,
Before the hills was I brought forth;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 8:26 -
While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields,
Nor the beginning of the dust of the world.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 8:27 -
When he established the heavens, I was there:
When he set a circle upon the face of the deep,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 8:28 -
When he made firm the skies above,
When the fountains of the deep became strong,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 8:29 -
When he gave to the sea its bound,
That the waters should not transgress his commandment,
When he marked out the foundations of the earth;

And I was daily his delight,
Rejoicing always before him,

Waiting at the posts of my doors.

And shall obtain favor of Jehovah.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 8:36 -
But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul:
All they that hate me love death.
