So I said: "Do not take me away, O my God, in the midst of my days; your years go on through all generations.
I say, "O my God, do not take me away in the midst of my days, Your years are throughout all generations.
But I cried to him, "My God, who lives forever, don’t take my life while I am still so young!
"Oh, don't," I prayed, "please don't let me die. You have more years than you know what to do with!
I will say, O my God, take me not away before my time; your years go on through all generations:
"O my God," I say, "do not take me away at the mid-point of my life, you whose years endure throughout all generations."
I said, "O my God, Do not take me away in the midst of my days; Your years are throughout all generations.
