What Bible says about Ageing

Old age may be the fruition of a moral life and an indication of God’s favor. “Follow the whole instruction the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live, prosper, and have a long life in the land you will possess” (Deuteronomy 5:33).  

Old age is a general part of God’s purpose for a normal life. “He took his last breath and died at a ripe old age, old and contented, and he was gathered to his people” (Genesis 25:8).
“David son of Jesse… died at a good old age, full of days, riches, and honor…” (1 Chronicles 29:26, 28).
“Then Job died, old and full of days” (Job 42:17). 

Old age may be one reward of those who honor their parents. “Honor your father and your mother so that you may have a long life in the land that the Lord your God is giving you” (Exodus 20:12).
“Children, obey your parents in the Lord, because this is right. Honor your father and mother—which is the first commandment with a promise—that it may go well with you and that you may have a long life in the land” (Ephesians 6:1).
“If you walk in My ways and keep My statutes and commandments just as your father David did, I will give you a long life” (1 Kings 3:14).
“Gray hair is a glorious crown; it is found in the way of righteousness” (Proverbs 16:31). 

Wisdom is an attribute of the aged who depend upon God. “Happy is a man who finds wisdom and who acquires understanding… She is more precious than jewels; nothing you desire compares with her. Long life is in her right hand; in her left, riches and honor” (Proverbs 3:13, 15-16).
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For by Wisdom your days will be many, and years will be added to your life” (Proverbs 9:10-11).

Wise counsel to the younger is a duty of the aged. “Hear this, you elders; listen, all you inhabitants of the land. Has anything like this ever happened in your days or in the days of your ancestors? Tell your children about it, and let your children tell their children, and their children the next generation” (Joel 1:2-3).
“Remember the days of old; consider the years long past. Ask your father, and he will tell you, your elders, and they will teach you” (Deuteronomy 32:7).

The aged have continuing moral responsibilities. “Older men are to be self-controlled, worthy of respect, sensible, and sound in faith, love, and endurance. In the same way, older women are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not addicted to much wine. [They are] to teach what is good” (Titus 2:2-3).5
