Jeremiah 17:8; Ezekiel 19:10; Numbers 24:6; Job 29:19

hHe is like a tree planted by water,

that sends out its roots by the stream,

and does not fear when heat comes,

for its leaves remain green,

and is not anxious in the year of drought,

for it does not cease to bear fruit.

10  Your mother was ilike a vine in a vineyard1

planted by the water,

jfruitful and full of branches

kby reason of abundant water.

Like palm groves1 that stretch afar,

like gardens beside a river,

xlike aloes ythat the Lord has planted,

like cedar trees beside the waters.

19  my xroots spread out to ythe waters,

with the dew all night on my zbranches,
