these are SQL things, not Lua things.   any Lua SQL library simply
forwards the commands to the SQL library; it doesn't 'accept' one or
another syntax.

that 'BEFORE' is about trigger creation.  a totally different SQL
feature, it has _nothing_ to do with 'table ordering'.  Also remember
that as both Ge' and pan shizhu already said, an SQL database table
DOESN'T HAVE ORDER.  what you do is to ask in what order you want the
results when you ask for them.

you really need to learn some SQL for this.
