Psalms 71:18

Context

71:18 Even when I am old and gray, 2 

O God, do not abandon me,

until I tell the next generation about your strength,

and those coming after me about your power. 3 

1 tn Heb “do not cast me away at the time of old age.”

2 tn Heb “and even unto old age and gray hair.”

3 tn Heb “until I declare your arm to a generation, to everyone who comes your power.” God’s “arm” here is an anthropomorphism that symbolizes his great strength.
