  • 16For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.

  • 17But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;

  • 18To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.

  • 19The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.
