Isaiah 40:8 English Standard Version (ESV)
8 The grass withers, the flower fades,
but the word of our God will stand forever.
Isaiah 40:8 New International Version (NIV)
8 The grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of our God endures forever.”
Isaiah 40:8 The Message (MSG)
6-8 A voice says, “Shout!”
I said, “What shall I shout?”
“These people are nothing but grass,
their love fragile as wildflowers.
The grass withers, the wildflowers fade,
if God so much as puffs on them.
Aren’t these people just so much grass?
True, the grass withers and the wildflowers fade,
but our God’s Word stands firm and forever.”
