Psalms 90:5-9

5 You a  sweep them away as with a flood; they are like b  a dream,
like c  grass that is renewed in the morning:
6in d  the morning it flourishes and is renewed;
in the evening it e  fades and f  withers.
7 For we are brought to an end by your anger;
by your wrath we are dismayed.
8You have g  set our iniquities before you,
our h  secret sins in the light of your presence.
9 For all our days pass away under your wrath;
we bring our years to an end like a sigh.

Psalms 92:7

7that though i  the wicked sprout like grass
and all j  evildoers flourish,
they are doomed to destruction forever;

Psalms 92:12

12 k  The righteous flourish like the palm tree
and grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

Psalms 103:15-16

15 As for man, his days are like l  grass;
he flourishes like m  a flower of the field;
16for n  the wind passes over it, and o  it is gone,
and p  its place knows it no more.

Isaiah 40:6-8

The Word of God Stands Forever

6 A voice says, “Cry!”
And I said,
Revocalization based on Dead Sea Scroll, Septuagint, Vulgate; Masoretic Text  And someone says
What shall I cry?”
r  All flesh is grass,
and all its beauty
Or  all its constancy
is like the flower of the field.
7The grass withers, the flower fades
when the breath of the  Lord blows on it;
surely the people are grass.
8 t  The grass withers, the flower fades,
but the word of our God will stand forever.

James 1:10-11

10and u  the rich in his humiliation, because v  like a flower of the grass
Or  a wild flower
he will pass away.
11For the sun rises with its scorching heat and x  withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beauty perishes. So also will the rich man fade away in the midst of his pursuits.

James 4:14

14yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For y  you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.
