As a father has compassion on his children,
so the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him;
for HE knows how we are formed, He remembers we are but dust.
As for man, his days are like grass,
he flourishes like a flower of the field;
the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more.
But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord's love is with those who fear Him,
and His righteousness with their children's children--
with those who keep His covenant and remember to obey His precepts.
