"Ancient as the hills" = cổ xưa như ngọn đồi -> nghĩa là tồn tại rất lâu hoặc cao tuổi. Ngọn đồi trong Kinh thánh được xem như biểu tượng của sự trường tồn.

Ví dụ
In contrast to the pursuit (theo đuổi) of knowledge stands an embodied (tiêu biểu) Theology that is as ancient as the hills. I would have to assume that wisdom may still be found among the greater majority of the Christian world that is preparing right now for a season of prayer, fasting (nhịn ăn), sacrifice, and contrition.

Santana Dharma is as ancient as the hills and seas and permeates (thấm vào) not just humanity but all living beings. So it will never die.

The active vs. passive debate is as ancient as the hills in mutual fund investing circles. And perhaps it's time to lead it gently (nhẹ nhàng) to its grave.
