New Living Translation:
“But the love of the Lord remains forever with those who fear him. His salvation extends to the children’s children”
“But from everlasting to everlasting, the Lord’s mercy is on those who fear him. His righteousness belongs to their children and grandchildren,”
“But the lovingkindness of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who [reverently] fear Him, And His righteousness to children’s children,”
Beloved, the mercy, favor and loving-kindness of the Lord is from the eternity past to the eternity to come. It had its foundation in the eternal decrees of God; its security in His purpose that where it is conferred, it shall not be withdrawn. It had no beginning; it will have no end. There never was a period in the past when it was not the purpose of God to save His people; there never will be a period in the future when it will be said that His saving mercy has ceased. But if you really wants to enjoy this love and mercy, you must worship God reverently, put on His righteousness, fear and obey Him along with your generations, so that they will also partake of His mercy. Men may pass away, but Jehovah’s lovingkindness and righteousness, i.e. His covenant faithfulness, endures forever.
