A generation goes and a generation comes,
but the earth remains forever.
He set them in position forever and ever;
He gave an order that will never pass away.
He built His sanctuary like the heights,
like the earth that He established forever.
As long as the earth endures,
seedtime and harvest, cold and heat,
summer and winter, and day and night
will not cease.”
Do you not fear Me?
This is the Lord’s declaration.
Do you not tremble before Me,
the One who set the sand as the boundary of the sea,
an enduring barrier that it cannot cross?
The waves surge, but they cannot prevail.
They roar but cannot pass over it.
The blessings of your father excel
the blessings of my ancestors
and the bounty of the eternal hills.
May they rest on the head of Joseph,
on the crown of the prince of his brothers.
with the best products of the ancient mountains
and the bounty of the eternal hills;
This is what the Lord God says: Because the enemy has said about you, ‘Good! The ancient heights have become our possession,’
He stands and shakes the earth;
He looks and startles the nations.
The age-old mountains break apart;
the ancient hills sink down.
His pathways are ancient.
And I tell you, make friends for yourselves by means of the unrighteous money so that when it fails, they may welcome you into eternal dwellings.
