thousand generations

Psalms 105:8

105:8 thousand generations. It is evident from this verse that “a thousand generations” does not mean precisely, “thirty thousand years,” but rather is just a metaphor synonymous with “for ever.” This fact is further emphasized in Psalm 105:10 where the covenant is called “an everlasting covenant.” Compare Deuteronomy 7:9 and I Chronicles 16:15 (the psalm delivered by David in I Chronicles 16:8-36 included in verses 8–22 has practically the same words as Psalm 105:1-15).
