The eternal Yahweh (Ps 102:25-102:28)

“Long ago

You laid the foundation of the earth.

The heavens are the work of your hands.

They will perish.

But you will endure.

They will all wear out like a garment.

You change them like clothing.

They pass away.

But you are the same.

Your years have no end.

The children of your servants

Shall live secure.

Their offspring shall be established

In your presence.”

This psalm ends with a tribute to the eternal Yahweh, who had laid the foundation for the earth. He has made both heaven and earth, which will both pass away just like the changing of clothes. However, Yahweh would not pass away. He would be the same since his years have no end. Their offspring and children would be established in the presence of eternal Yahweh.
