[Psa 90:1-2 YLT] (1) A Prayer of Moses, the man of God. Lord [ADONAY], a habitation Thou -- Thou hast been, To us -- in generation and generation, (2) Before mountains were brought forth, And Thou dost form the earth and the world, Even from age unto age Thou art God.

In other words, is Moses saying that ADONAY is "from eternity past to eternity future" or is he saying that ADONAY has been faithful to his People from one generation to the next?


The Hebrew has as the last phrase "you are ELOHIM" but the LXX simply as "you are".


It is not a restatement. For "generation to generation" it is saying that G-d has been on the side of the people of Israel from generation to generation; whereas, for "from eternity to eternity" it is referring to G-d always being the only G-d.


God was God,He is God right now as we speak and HE is still going to be God in the future.He existed long before the earth was even created.He is from eternity(Micah 5) and He shall reign forever and ever.
