Eternal Yahweh (Ps 90:1-90:2)

A prayer of Moses, the man of God

“Yahweh!

You have been our dwelling place,

In all generations.

Before the mountains were brought forth,

Before you had formed the earth,

Before you had formed the world,

From everlasting to everlasting,

You are God.”

Psalm 90 is one of the few psalms of Moses, not David or the other Temple singers. This is a hymn that praises eternal Yahweh who is the psalmist’s dwelling place. Yahweh existed before the mountains came to be. He existed before the earth or the world was formed. Yahweh is the eternal everlasting God.
