Will the Earth Survive?

A generation is going, and a generation is coming, But the earth remains forever.

=====================================================

Our planet Earth will not be destroyed by any cataclysm. Why can we be sure of that? Because God promises that the earth “will not be made to totter to time indefinite, or forever.” Although “generations come and generations go,” states the Bible, “the earth remains forever.”

At Psalm 104:5, the permanence of the earth is emphasized by two words used in the original Hebrew of that text—ʽoh·lamʹ for “time indefinite” and ʽadh for “forever.” ʽOh·lamʹ may be translated “many years” or “perpetual.” According to Harkavy’s Students’ Hebrew and Chaldee Dictionary, ʽadh means “duration, everlastingness, eternity, for ever.” These two Hebrew words show the durability of the earth to be doubly certain.
