“Of old You founded the earth,
And the heavens are the work of Your hands.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
“You, Lord, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth,
And the heavens are the works of Your hands;
Thus the heavens and the earth were completed, and all their hosts.
For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day and made it holy.
“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?
Tell Me, if you have understanding,
For all the gods of the peoples are idols,
But the Lord made the heavens.
“From everlasting I was established,
From the beginning, from the earliest times of the earth.
‘Ah Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! Nothing is too difficult for You,
For He has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, by just so much as the builder of the house has more honor than the house.
