"O my God,"1I say, "take me not away in the midst of my days-- 2you whose years endure throughout all generations!"
253Of old you laid the foundation of the earth, and 4the heavens are the work of your hands.
265They will perish, but 6you will remain; they will all wear out like a garment. You will change them like a robe, and they will pass away,
but 7you are the same, and your years have no end.
288The children of your servants 9shall dwell secure; 10their offspring shall be established before you.
