15 By me kings reign and rulers issue decrees that are just 16 By me princes govern, and nobles – all who rule on earth. 17 I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me. 18 With me are riches and honor, enduring wealth and prosperity. 19 My fruit is better than fine gold; what I yield surpasses choice silver. 20 I walk in the way of righteousness, along the paths of justice 21 Bestowing a rich inheritance on those who love me and making their treasuries full. 22 "The LORD brought me forth as the first of his works, before his deeds of old;" 23 I was formed long ages ago, at the very beginning, when the world came to be. 24 When there were no oceans, I was given birth, when there were no springs abounding 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. 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. (NIV)
