  1. 1:3 Or beside irrigation channels

Then he took some of the land’s seed and put it in a fertile field;(A) he set it like a willow,(B) a plant[a] by abundant water. It sprouted and became a spreading vine, low in height with its branches turned toward him,(C) yet its roots stayed under it. So it became a vine, produced branches, and sent out shoots.

“‘But there was another huge eagle with powerful wings and thick plumage. And this vine bent its roots toward him! It stretched out its branches to him from the plot where it was planted,(D) so that he might water it. It had been planted in a good field by abundant water in order to produce branches, bear fruit, and become a splendid vine.’
