until I proclaim your might to another generation,
your power to all those to come.
(Psalm 71:17-18, ESV)

but tell to the coming generation
the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might,
and the wonders that he has done.

and appointed a law in Israel,
which he commanded our fathers
to teach to their children,
6 that the next generation might know them,
the children yet unborn,
and arise and tell them to their children,
7 so that they should set their hope in God
and not forget the works of God,
but keep his commandments;
(Psalm 78:4-7, ESV)
4 One generation shall commend your works to another,
and shall declare your mighty acts. (Psalm 145:4, ESV)

with a next-generation orientation.
