13 The just one will flourish like the palm tree. He will be multiplied like the cedar of Lebanon.
14 Those planted in the house of the Lord will flourish in the courts of the house of our God.
15 They will still be multiplied in a fruitful old age, and they will endure well,
16 so that they may announce that the Lord our God is righteous and that there is no iniquity in him.
22 Thus says the Lord God: "I myself will take from the kernel of the exalted cedar, and I will establish it. I will tear off a tender twig from the top of its branches, and I will plant it on a mountain, lofty and exalted.
23 On the sublime mountains of Israel, I will plant it. And it shall spring forth in buds and bear fruit, and it shall be a great cedar. And all the birds will live under it, and every bird will make its nest under the shadow of its branches.
24 And all the trees of the regions will know that I, the Lord, have brought low the sublime tree, and have exalted the lowly tree, and have dried up the green tree, and have caused the dry tree to flourish. I, the Lord, have spoken and acted."
