'Shoots' in the Bible
He is green before the sun. His shoots go forth over his garden.
It sent out its branches to the sea, Its shoots to the River.
Like a madman who shoots torches, arrows, and death,
Your shoots are an orchard of pomegranates, with precious fruits: henna with spikenard plants,
For the fields of Heshbon languish with the vine of Sibmah. The lords of the nations have broken down its choice branches, which reached even to Jazer, which wandered into the wilderness. Its shoots were spread abroad. They passed over the sea.
