While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.
– Proverbs 8:26
The word for earth can refer to land or, as here, be put for the whole of the earth. The fields are the wild or desert places of the earth. The word for dust does indicate something powdered such as dry earth or ashes. This verse ranges from the grand scope of the whole earth to the minute particles of dust upon the earth. God has made wisdom indispensable to all aspects of the creation. By extension, one should consider wisdom indispensable to living in a universe and upon an earth where from the greatest to the smallest was made with wisdom.
