English Standard Version
The Word of God Stands Forever
6 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.
7 The grass withers, the flower fades
when the breath of the Lord blows on it;
surely the people are grass.
8 (B)The grass withers, the flower fades,
but the word of our God will stand forever.
The Greatness of God
9 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.
