Psalm 102:25-27 New English Translation (NET Bible)

25 In earlier times you established the earth;
the skies are your handiwork.
26 They will perish,
but you will endure.[a]
They will wear out like a garment;
like clothes you will remove them and they will disappear.[b]
27 But you remain;[c]
your years do not come to an end.


  1. Psalm 102:26 tn Heb “stand.”
  2. Psalm 102:26 tn The Hebrew verb חָלַף (khalaf) occurs twice in this line, once in the Hiphil (“you will remove them”) and once in the Qal (“they will disappear”). The repetition draws attention to the statement.
  3. Psalm 102:27 tn Heb “you [are] he,” or “you [are] the one.” The statement may echo the Lord’s affirmation “I am he” in Isa 41:4; 43:10, 13; 46:10; 48:12. In each of these passages the affirmation emphasizes the fact that the Lord transcends time limitations, the very point being made in Ps 102:27.
