29 When he set in place the pillars of the earth
    and spoke the decrees of the seas,
    commanding the waves
    so that they wouldn’t overstep their boundaries,
30 I was there, close to the Creator’s side[a] as his master artist.[b]
    Daily he was filled with delight in me
    as I playfully rejoiced before him.[c]
31 I laughed and played,
    so happy with what he had made,
    while finding my delight in the children of men.”[d]
