to hear the groaning of the prisoner, to loose those that are appointed to death,
to declare the name of the LORD in Zion, and His praise in Jerusalem,
when people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve the LORD.
He weakened my strength on 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 hast Thou laid 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; and 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."
