The grass withers, the flowers fade,
but the word of our God remains forever.”
1 Peter 1:24
ForAll flesh is like grass,
and all its glorylike a flower of the grass.
The grass withers, and the flower falls,
For they wither quickly like grass
and wilt like tender green plants.
My heart is afflicted, withered like grass;
I even forget to eat my food.
My days are like a lengthening shadow,
and I wither away like grass.
Let them be like grass on the rooftops,
which withers before it grows up
The waters of Nimrim are desolate;
the grass is withered, the foliage is gone,
and the vegetation has vanished.
The grass withers, the flowers fade
when the breath of the Lord blows on them;
indeed, the people are grass.
For the sun rises with its scorching heat and dries up the grass; its flower falls off, and its beautiful appearance is destroyed. In the same way, the rich man will wither away while pursuing his activities.
