A voice was saying, “Cry out!”
And I said, “What shall I cry out?”
    All flesh is grass,
    and all its beauty[a] is like a wildflower in the countryside.
    Grass withers, flowers fade,
    when the breath[b] of the Lord blows on them.
    Yes, the people are grass.
    Grass withers, flowers fade,
    but the Word of our God endures forever.
