Psalm 37:2; Psalm 103:15; 2 Kings 19:26; Isaiah 40:6–8; 1 Peter 1:24

For they will soon wfade like xthe grass

and wither ylike the green herb.


15  As for man, his days are like tgrass;

he flourishes like ua flower of the field;


26  while their inhabitants, shorn of strength,

are dismayed and confounded,

and have become ilike plants of the field

and like tender grass,

like grass on the housetops,

blighted before it is grown.


The Word of God Stands Forever

A voice says, Cry!

And I said,1 What shall I cry?

iAll flesh is grass,

and all its beauty2 is like the flower of the field.

The grass withers, the flower fades

when the breath of the Lord blows on it;

surely the people are grass.

jThe grass withers, the flower fades,

but the word of our God will stand forever.


24 for

gAll flesh is like grass

and all its glory like the flower of grass.

The grass withers,

and the flower falls,
