When the peoples are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve HaShem.
He weakened my strength in the way; He shortened my days.
I say: 'O my G-d, take me not away in the midst of my days, Thou whose years endure throughout all generations.
Of old Thou didst lay the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the work of Thy hands.
They shall perish, but Thou shalt endure; yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt Thou change them, and they shall pass away;
But Thou art the selfsame, and Thy years shall have no end.
The children of Thy servants shall dwell securely, and their seed shall be established before Thee.'
