for he is coming to judge the earth.
- Job 14:7-9 CSB
There is hope for a tree:
If it is cut down, it will sprout again,
and its shoots will not die.

and its stump starts to die in the soil,
9 the scent of water makes it thrive
and produce twigs like a sapling.
- Psalm 1:1-3 CSB
How happy is the one who does not
walk in the advice of the wicked
or stand in the pathway with sinners
or sit in the company of mockers!
2 Instead, his delight is in the Lord’s instruction,
and he meditates on it day and night.
3 He is like a tree planted beside flowing streams[a]
that bears its fruit in its season
and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers.

and be peacefully guided;
the mountains and the hills will break into singing before you,
and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.
13 Instead of the thornbush, a cypress will come up,
and instead of the brier, a myrtle will come up;
this will stand as a monument for the Lord,
an everlasting sign that will not be destroyed.
- Isaiah 61:3 CSB
to provide for those who mourn in Zion;
to give them a crown of beauty instead of ashes,
festive oil instead of mourning,
and splendid clothes instead of despair.
And they will be called righteous trees,
planted by the Lord
to glorify him.
- Jeremiah 17:8 CSB
He will be like a tree planted by water:
it sends its roots out toward a stream,
it doesn’t fear when heat comes,
and its foliage remains green.
It will not worry in a year of drought
or cease producing fruit.
- Ezekiel 17:22-24 CSB
“‘This is what the Lord God says:
I will take a sprig
from the lofty top of the cedar and plant it.
I will pluck a tender sprig
from its topmost shoots,
and I will plant it
on a high towering mountain.
23 I will plant it on Israel’s high mountain
so that it may bear branches, produce fruit,
and become a majestic cedar.
Birds of every kind will nest under it,
taking shelter in the shade of its branches.
24 Then all the trees of the field will know
that I am the Lord.
I bring down the tall tree,
and make the low tree tall.
I cause the green tree to wither
and make the withered tree thrive.
I, the Lord, have spoken
and I will do it.’”

Figs aren’t gathered from thornbushes, or grapes picked from a bramble bush. 45 A good person produces good out of the good stored up in his heart. An evil person produces evil out of the evil stored up in his heart, for his mouth speaks from the overflow of the heart.

Amazing how often God makes a comparison between two things with trees. Thanks again for these Heather.
This collection of verses got me thinking about a sermon I did from Genesis to Revelation on God’s Presence: Trees, Tabernacles and Temples. Maybe I might break it up and polish it up as a series on my blog…
Ooooh—sounds good and interesting!
I am making a quilt with tree shapes on it and I was convicted with, does what I love show Christ in me or bring others to Christ? I thank you for this, I have 18 “trees” and will put a verse in each one. I will search out other theme’s for future quilts.
That’s wonderful Susie, I wish we could see the finished version!!
