First Reading

Proverbs 8,22-31

'Yahweh created me, first-fruits of his fashioning, before the oldest of his works.

From everlasting, I was firmly set, from the beginning, before the earth came into being.

The deep was not, when I was born, nor were the springs with their abounding waters.

Before the mountains were settled, before the hills, I came to birth;

before he had made the earth, the countryside, and the first elements of the world.

When he fixed the heavens firm, I was there, when he drew a circle on the surface of the deep,

when he thickened the clouds above, when the sources of the deep began to swell,

when he assigned the sea its boundaries -- and the waters will not encroach on the shore -- when he traced the foundations of the earth,

I was beside the master craftsman, delighting him day after day, ever at play in his presence,

at play everywhere on his earth, delighting to be with the children of men.
