I say, “O my God, do not take me away in the midst of my days,
Your years are throughout all generations.
Are You not from everlasting,
O Lord, my God, my Holy One?
We will not die.
You, O Lord, have appointed them to judge;
And You, O Rock, have established them to correct.
“Turn Your gaze away from me, that I may smile again
Before I depart and am no more.”
But You, O Lord, abide forever,
And Your name to all generations.
“Behold, God is exalted, and we do not know Him;
The number of His years is unsearchable.
But the Lord abides forever;
He has established His throne for judgment,
A Prayer of Moses, the man of God.
Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations.
I said, “In the middle of my life
I am to enter the gates of Sheol;
I am to be deprived of the rest of my years.”
John to the seven churches that are in Asia: Grace to you and peace, from Him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne,
“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
