Why have you shortened their days, oh Lord?
Psalm 101 (102)>
Your years last from generation to generation: in the beginning you founded the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands.
They will pass away but You will remain;
all will grow old, like clothing,
and like a cloak You will change them, and they will be changed.
“But You are always the same,
Your years will never run out."
This psalm asks the age old question, "Why have you brought them down in the midst of their journey? Why have you taken them 'half way through the days of their lives?'"
I think the answer is "They will pass away, but You will remain. All will grow old, like clothing but you are always the same, your years will never run out."
All will pass away. Today, tomorrow, or the next day.
But God is the same, yesterday, today and forever.
