BEFORE THE EARTH CAME INTO BEING, WISDOM WAS BORN (PROV 8:22-31)

The Most Holy Trinity (Year C) – First Reading

The Wisdom of God cries aloud:

The Lord created me when his purpose first unfolded,

before the oldest of his works.

From everlasting I was firmly set,

from the beginning, before earth came into being.

The deep was not, when I was born,

there were no Springs to gush with water.

Before the mountains were settled,

before the hills, I came to birth;

before he made the earth, the countryside,

or the first grains of the world’s dust.

When he fixed the heavens firm, I was there,

when he drew ring on the surface of the deep,

when he thickened the cloud above,

when he fixed fast the springs of the deep,

when he assigned the sea its boundaries

– and the waters will not invade the shore –

when he laid down the foundations of the earth,

I was by his side, a master craftsman,

delighting in him day after day,

ever at play in his presence,

at play everywhere in the world,

delighting to be with the sons of men.

 

The word of the Lord.
