3 He is like ia tree
planted by jstreams of water
and its kleaf does not wither.
lIn all that he does, he prospers.
8 But I am like ma green olive tree
7 In his days may zthe righteous flourish,
and apeace abound, till the moon be no more!
28 Whoever strusts in his riches will fall,
but the righteous will tflourish like a green leaf.
6 Like palm groves1 that stretch afar,
xto give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes,
ythe oil of gladness instead of mourning,
zthat they may be called oaks of righteousness,
5 xI will be like the dew to Israel;
yhe shall blossom like the lily;
he shall take root like the trees zof Lebanon;
his beauty shall be alike the olive,
8 O cEphraim, what have I to do with idols?
It is I who answer and look after you.2
dfrom me comes your fruit.
