Will the earth abide forever or will it be destroyed? (Psalm 104:5)

Psalm 104:5 King James Version (KJV)
5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.

This verse, and several others (cf. Ps. 78:69; Ecclesiastes 1:4), speak of the earth being “established forever.” By contrast, the Bible also teaches that the heavens and the earth “will perish” (Ps. 102:26) or “pass away” (Luke 21:33), being “burned up” (2 Peter 3:10).  Does the earth abide forever or not?

Psalms 104:5

ESV - 5 He set the earth on its foundations, so that it should never be moved.
