Ps 102 "you are he"

<Trevor>
>>V. 28 as an extension of v. 27 also makes sense to me. Just as v. 26
follows "wax old" with two similar predications, so does v. 28 with the
contrasting statement in v. 27.

<Bill>
In English, if I say "you are the same" I mean "you remain unchanged." 

As I understand the LXX, it seems to be saying "you are the same one"
though I'm not sure if it could also be saying "you are unchanged":

27  But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.
27  (101:28) su de o autov ei kai ta eth sou ouk ekleiqousin

In the Hebrew, *can* it read "you remain unchanged" or is it "you are
he?"

There seems to be some parallelism going on:

27  But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.

Any exegetical help would be appreciated.
