Proverbs 8:31

Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.
Read Chapter 8

Ambrose of Milan

AD 397
We have that general seemliness; for God made the beauty of this world. We have it also in its parts; for when God made the light, and marked off the day from the night, when he made heaven, and separated land and seas, when he set the sun and moon and stars to shine upon the earth, he approved of them all one by one. Therefore this comeliness, which shone forth in each single part of the world, was resplendent in the whole, as the book of Wisdom shows, saying, “I existed, in whom he rejoiced when he was glad at the completion of the world.” Likewise also in the building up of the human body each single member is pleasing, but the right adjustment of the members all together delights us far more. For thus they seem to be united and fitted into one harmonious whole. .

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Men. God saw that all was good, but delighted most in his own image. (Menochius) He prefers man before all other corporeal creatures. (Worthington) To him alone below he has granted understanding, and a soul capable of virtue. The Son has also assumed our nature, Baruch iii. 37.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
