Your faithfulness continues throughout all generations;
You established the earth, and it stands.
Your lovingkindness, O Lord, extends to the heavens,
Your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
A Maskil of Ethan the Ezrahite.
I will sing of the lovingkindness of the Lord forever;
To all generations I will make known Your faithfulness with my mouth.
He has also established them forever and ever;
He has made a decree which will not pass away.
A generation goes and a generation comes,
But the earth remains forever.
Know therefore that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God, who keeps His covenant and His lovingkindness to a thousandth generation with those who love Him and keep His commandments;
“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?
Tell Me, if you have understanding,
The heavens are Yours, the earth also is Yours;
The world and all it contains, You have founded them.
The Lord reigns, He is clothed with majesty;
The Lord has clothed and girded Himself with strength;
Indeed, the world is firmly established, it will not be moved.
For the Lord is good;
His lovingkindness is everlasting
And His faithfulness to all generations.
He established the earth upon its foundations,
So that it will not totter forever and ever.
You will give truth to Jacob
And unchanging love to Abraham,
Which You swore to our forefathers
From the days of old.
For when they maintain this, it escapes their notice that by the word of God the heavens existed long ago and the earth was formed out of water and by water,
