In the course of my lifea he broke my strength; he cut short my days.124
So I said: "Do not take me away, O my God, in the midst of my days; your years go on2 through all generations.
In the beginning3 you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens4 are the work of your hands.526
They will perish,6 but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment. Like clothing you will change them and they will be discarded.
But you remain the same,7 and your years will never end.828
The children of your servants9 will live in your presence; their descendants10 will be established before you."
