He lets me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside quiet waters.
The Lord named you
a flourishing olive tree,
beautiful with well-formed fruit.
He has set fire to it,
and its branches are consumed
with a great roaring sound.
But I am like a flourishing olive tree
in the house of God;
I trust in God’s faithful love forever and ever.
The righteous thrive like a palm tree
and grow like a cedar tree in Lebanon. Planted in the house of the Lord,
they thrive in the courts of our God. They will still bear fruit in old age,
healthy and green,read more.
to declare: “The Lord is just;
He is my rock,
and there is no unrighteousness in Him.”
I have seen a wicked, violent man
well-rooted like a flourishing native tree.
For they wither quickly like grass
and wilt like tender green plants.
Then He instructed them to have all the people sit down in groups on the green grass.
They were told not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green plant, or any tree, but only people who do not have God’s seal on their foreheads.
2 Kings 19:26
Their inhabitants have become powerless,
dismayed, and ashamed.
They are plants of the field,
grass on the rooftops,
blasted by the east wind.
The waters of Nimrim are desolate;
the grass is withered, the foliage is gone,
and the vegetation has vanished.
They will still bear fruit in old age,
healthy and green,
for all the wildlife of the earth, for every bird of the sky, and for every creature that crawls on the earth—everything having the breath of life in it. I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so.
He will be like a tree planted by water:
it sends its roots out toward a stream,
it doesn’t fear when heat comes,
and its foliage remains green.
It will not worry in a year of drought
or cease producing fruit.
Destroy completely all the places where the nations that you are driving out worship their gods—on the high mountains, on the hills, and under every green tree.
Then I passed by and noticed he was gone;
I searched for him, but he could not be found.
Then all the trees of the field will know
that I am Yahweh.
I bring down the tall tree,
and make the low tree tall.
I cause the green tree to wither
and make the withered tree thrive.
I, Yahweh, have spoken
and I will do it.
