in all generations
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.
