Psalms 102:27 Meaning and Commentary

Psalms 102:27

But thou art the same
That hast created them, as the Targum adds; or "thou art he" F8, the everlasting I AM, the unchangeable Jehovah; immutable in his nature and perfections; in his love and affections to his people; in his power to protect and keep them; in his wisdom to guide and direct them; in his righteousness to clothe them, and render them acceptable to God; in his blood to cleanse them, and speak peace and pardon to them; in his fulness to supply them, and in his intercession for them,

and thy years shall have no end; (See Gill on Psalms 102:24), now he, that made the heavens and the earth, and will be when they will not be, especially in the present form they are, must be able to rebuild his Zion, and bring on the glory he has promised; and from his eternity and immutability may be concluded the continuance of his church and interest in the world, until all the glorious things spoken of it shall be fulfilled, as follows.


F8 (awh hta) "tu ipse", Pagninus, Montanus.

Psalms 102:27 In-Context

25 Long ago you laid the foundation of the earth. Even the heavens are the works of your hands.
26 They will come to an end, but you will still go on. They will all wear out like clothing. You will change them like clothes, and they will be thrown away.
27 But you remain the same, and your life will never end.
28 The children of your servants will go on living [here]. Their descendants will be secure in your presence."
