    Ps 104: 2,3 Who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain,...who maketh the clouds his chariot, who walketh upon the wings of the wind.
    These verses are some of the very most beautiful in the entire bible. The whole chapter is wonderful. The last verse is interesting to dream about as well.

    Revelations, etc. tells us the earth will be destroyed, then a new earth will be built. Psalms 104:5 says it will not be removed forever. V. 5 does not say the earth will never be destroyed.
  • James
    In verse 5 we have Gods promise that this earth will never be destroyed and it will remain forever
  • Jacob Kofi Kissi somuah
    How wonderful and marvelous are thy works Oh God. For He sent forth His spirit and they are created. Ps. 104 30. Creation came into being from where? The sea came into being from where? From where comes the galaxy? This hanging planet earth came into being from where? The air we breathe that gives free oxygen for our sustenance flows from where? You are indeed wonderful and marvelous God.
