18 Let this be written(A) for a future generation,
    that a people not yet created(B) may praise the Lord:
19 “The Lord looked down(C) from his sanctuary on high,
    from heaven he viewed the earth,
20 to hear the groans of the prisoners(D)
    and release those condemned to death.”
21 So the name of the Lord will be declared(E) in Zion
    and his praise(F) in Jerusalem
22 when the peoples and the kingdoms
    assemble to worship(G) the Lord.

23 In the course of my life[a] he broke my strength;
    he cut short my days.(H)
24 So I said:
“Do not take me away, my God, in the midst of my days;
    your years go on(I) through all generations.
