24 So I said:
“Do not take me away, my God, in the midst of my days;
    your years go on(A) through all generations.
25 In the beginning(B) you laid the foundations of the earth,
    and the heavens(C) are the work of your hands.(D)
26 They will perish,(E) but you remain;
    they will all wear out like a garment.
Like clothing you will change them
    and they will be discarded.
27 But you remain the same,(F)
    and your years will never end.(G)

    at the very beginning, when the world came to be.
24 When there were no watery depths, I was given birth,
    when there were no springs overflowing with water;(A)
25 before the mountains were settled in place,(B)
    before the hills, I was given birth,(C)
26 before he made the world or its fields
    or any of the dust of the earth.(D)
