To hear the sighing of the prisoner; To loose those that are appointed to death;
That men may declare the name of Jehovah in Zion, And his praise in Jerusalem;
When the peoples are gathered together, And the kingdoms, to serve Jehovah.
He weakened my strength in the way; He shortened my days.
I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days: Thy years are throughout all generations.
Of old didst thou lay the foundation of the earth; And the heavens are the work of thy hands.
They shall perish, but thou shalt endure; Yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; As a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed:
But thou art the same, And thy years shall have no end.
The children of thy servants shall continue, And their seed shall be established before thee.
