Even[a] until your[b] old age, I am the one,
    and I’ll carry you even until your gray hairs come.[c]
It is I who have created,[d] and I who will carry,
    and it is I who will bear and save.

“To whom will you compare me,
    count me equal,[e] or liken me,
        so that I[f] may be compared?
Those who pour out gold in[g] a purse,
    weigh silver in a balance,
hire a goldsmith in order to make[h] a god,
    and then[i] they bow down and even worship it.
