Like a tree planted by living waters

Submitted by on Wednesday, 17 September 2008No Comment
He whose pleasant commitment is the Torah is like a tree planted along living waters

A view of the Japanese Gardens

They are like trees planted by streams of water,

which yield their fruits
in due season.

Their leaves

do not wither;

they prosper

in all they do.

  (Psalm 1:3)

"Sinners cannot live in heaven, they would be out of their element. Sooner could a fish live on a tree than a sinner in paradise." (Spurgeon)

Blessed are those who have faith in the Lord, whose trust is in the Lord.
They shall be like a tree planted by the water,
sending out its roots by the stream.
It shall not fear when heat comes,
and its leaves shall stay green;
in the year of drought it is not anxious
and it does not cease to bear fruit. (Jeremiah 17:7-8)

Psalm 1:3
View in: NAB NIV KJV NJB Vulg LXX Hebrew
3And he shall be like a tree which is planted near the running waters, which shall bring forth its fruit, in due season. And his leaf shall not fall off: and all whatsoever he shall do shall prosper.
Jeremiah 17:7-8
View in: NAB NIV KJV NJB Vulg LXX Hebrew
7Blessed be the man that trusteth in the Lord, and the Lord shall be his confidence.
8And he shall be as a tree that is planted by the waters, that spreadeth out its roots towards moisture: and it shall not fear when the heat cometh. And the leaf thereof shall be green, and in the time of drought it shall not be solicitous, neither shall it cease at any time to bring forth fruit.
