'Plants' in the Bible
He causes the grass to grow for the livestock, and plants for man to cultivate, that he may bring forth food out of the earth:
Your wife will be as a fruitful vine, in the innermost parts of your house; your children like olive plants, around your table.
Then our sons will be like well-nurtured plants, our daughters like pillars carved to adorn a palace.
She considers a field, and buys it. With the fruit of her hands, she plants a vineyard.
Your shoots are an orchard of pomegranates, with precious fruits: henna with spikenard plants,
I went down into the nut tree grove, to see the green plants of the valley, to see whether the vine budded, and the pomegranates were in flower.
For you have forgotten the God of your salvation, and have not remembered the rock of your strength. Therefore you plant pleasant plants, and set out foreign seedlings.
He cuts down cedars for himself, and takes the cypress and the oak, and strengthens for himself one among the trees of the forest. He plants a fir tree, and the rain nourishes it.
Ask of Yahweh rain in the spring time, Yahweh who makes storm clouds, and he gives rain showers to everyone for the plants in the field.
So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase.
Now he who plants and he who waters are the same, but each will receive his own reward according to his own labor.
