Psalm 90:2—Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
This rock is old...maybe even 5,000 years old! Mountains are like giant-sized rocks. They are old too. But before these old mountains were "brought forth" and made, God existed. He is older than the mountains or even the whole world! That is really old. Older than 5,000 years. Older than anything else. But exactly how many years old is God? Listen carefully as I read and see if the verse gives us a number.
"... from everlasting to everlasting you are God."

Deuteronomy 33:27a—The eternal God is your dwelling place,…
Why would it be a good thing to know that God doesn't ever have an end and will be alive forever?
