The Word of God Stands Forever

A voice says, “Cry!”
    And I said,[a] “What shall I cry?”
(A)All flesh is grass,
    and all its beauty[b] 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.
(B)The grass withers, the flower fades,
    but the word of our God will stand forever.

The Greatness of God

Go on up to a high mountain,
    O Zion, (C)herald of good news;[c]
lift up your voice with strength,
    O Jerusalem, herald of good news;[d]
    lift it up, fear not;
say to the cities of Judah,
    “Behold your God!”
10 (D)Behold, the Lord God comes with might,
    and his arm rules for him;
(E)behold, his reward is with him,
    and his recompense before him.
11 (F)He will tend his flock like a shepherd;
    (G)he will gather the lambs in his arms;
(H)he will carry them in his bosom,
    and gently lead those that are with young.
