King James Version
“Can the papyrus grow up without a marsh?
Can the rushes or reed grass grow without water?
“While it is still green (in flower) and not cut down,
Yet it withers before any other plant [when without water].
Tree of Life Version
New Living Translation
11 “Can papyrus reeds grow tall without a marsh?
Can marsh grass flourish without water?
12 While they are still flowering, not ready to be cut,
they begin to wither more quickly than grass.
