if it be cut down, that it will sprout again,

9 yet at the scent of water it will bud
and put out branches like a young plant.

who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,

nor sits in the seat of scoffers;

and on his law he meditates day and night.
3 He is like a tree
planted by streams of water
that yields its fruit in its season,
and its leaf does not wither.
In all that he does, he prospers.

trust in him, and he will act.
6 He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,
and your justice as the noonday.

the majesty of our God.

Thanks for this information I can really use it in creating my sermon God bless you.
I have a problem with my 3 sons. The first one who is 21 years of age do not want to go an further with his studies. He got a busury but don’t apply to Tertiary level, he is sitting at home and smoking dagga with friends.
The second one is very naughty, he is 15 years and don’t listen at school. The last one is eleven years and he behaves but he is a slow learner. He struggles at school.
I’m praying to God for a miracle to change them.
