New Defender's Study Bible Notes
90:1 in all generations. This psalm has always been identified as “a prayer of Moses the man of God” (superscript). The tone and context of the prayer would indicate that it was composed shortly before Moses was to die, with the children of Israel ready to enter the promised land. He had edited the records of the ancient patriarchs, from Adam down to Jacob and his sons as preserved now in the book of Genesis, and was thinking in terms of “all generations,” and God’s preservation of His people in all these ages.
90:2 everlasting to everlasting. To the skeptical question as to who made God, the only answer that satisfies all the facts of both science and human reason is that God is “from everlasting.” He is the Creator of time as well as space and all things that exist in time and space. This is beyond our mental comprehension, but there is no other rational explanation for our existence, and it is surely compatible with the intuitions of our spiritual comprehension. God satisfies the heart, regardless of difficulties conjured in the mind.
