    ln this verse , who were the sons of men, since Adam and Eve were not yet created. Were the sons of men Angels or what?
  • Chris - in Reply on Proverbs 8:31
    Proverbs 8:22-31, as you would know, speaks of Wisdom. Here is Wisdom speaking of herself, that it was the LORD's possession before creation & time. So when we look at v 31, we shouldn't think of 'sons of men' as being Angels or super humans, but simply that Wisdom was there not only in God's creative Work but also finding her "delight with Adam, Eve & all their descendants".
