The Word of God Stands Forever
A voice says, "Cry!"
And I said, "What shall I cry?"
i All flesh is grass,
and all its beauty 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.
j The grass withers, the flower fades,
but the word of our God will stand forever.

1 Peter 1:24 - 25
For "All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls.
He comes out like a flower and withers; he flees like a shadow and continues not.
My days are like an evening shadow; I wither away like grass.
As for man, his days are like grass; he flourishes like a flower of the field.
And the rich in his humiliation, because like a flower of the grass he will pass away.
For the sun rises with its scorching heat and withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beauty perishes. So also will the rich man fade away in the midst of his pursuits.
