from age to age

Psalm 90:1-2 (JDV)

Psalm 90:1 Lord, you have been where we live generation after generation.
Psalm 90:2 Before the mountains were born, before you gave birth to the land and the world, from age to age, you are God.

from age to age

Mays points out that the theme of time “is woven through the whole (of the psalm) in a way that identifies time as the problem of faith with which the psalm’s theology is concerned (vv. 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10, 13, 14, 15)” (290).

It does us all good to stop and realize that God has preceded us in time, and will still be here long after we are sleeping in the dust. He is the permanent one. We are temporary — at least we are now. Those who put their faith in Christ are promised a permanent resurrection life, but we are not there yet. He is the only one who is from age to age.
