“A voice says, “Cry!”
And I said, “What shall I cry”?
“All flesh is grass,
And all its beauty 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.
The grass withers, the flower fades,
But the word of our God will stand forever.”
“Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart, since you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God,
“All flesh is like grass
And all its glory like the flower of grass.
The grass withers,
And the flower falls,
But the word of the Lord remains forever.
And this word is the good news that was preached to you”.
(1 Peter 1:22-25)
