Psalms 119:90

Your faithfulness is unto all generations: you have established the earth, and it abides.
Read Chapter 119

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
90. But the next verse, after heaven, pertaineth consequently to earth. For this is one verse of the eight which relate to this letter. For eight verses are appended to each of these Hebrew letters, until this long Psalm be ended.
