The righteous man will flourish like the palm tree, He will grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
But as for me, I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in the lovingkindness of God forever and ever.
I will be like the dew to Israel; He will blossom like the lily, And he will take root like the cedars of Lebanon.
He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season And its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers.
The trees of the LORD drink their fill, The cedars of Lebanon which He planted,
"Like valleys that stretch out, Like gardens beside the river, Like aloes planted by the LORD, Like cedars beside the waters.

In his days may the righteous flourish, And abundance of peace till the moon is no more.
That when the wicked sprouted up like grass And all who did iniquity flourished, It was only that they might be destroyed forevermore.
Mountains and all hills; Fruit trees and all cedars;
"Instead of the thorn bush the cypress will come up, And instead of the nettle the myrtle will come up, And it will be a memorial to the LORD, For an everlasting sign which will not be cut off."
"They will not build and another inhabit, They will not plant and another eat; For as the lifetime of a tree, so will be the days of My people, And My chosen ones will wear out the work of their hands.
"For he will be like a tree planted by the water, That extends its roots by a stream And will not fear when the heat comes; But its leaves will be green, And it will not be anxious in a year of drought Nor cease to yield fruit.
"Yet it was I who destroyed the Amorite before them, Though his height was like the height of cedars And he was strong as the oaks; I even destroyed his fruit above and his root below.
