Bible: Isaiah 40:5-8

40:5 The splendor 1  of the Lord will be revealed,

and all people 2  will see it at the same time.

For 3  the Lord has decreed it.” 4 

40:6 A voice says, “Cry out!”

Another asks, 5 What should I cry out?”

The first voice responds: 6  “All people are like grass, 7 

and all their promises 8  are like the flowers in the field.

40:7 The grass dries up,

the flowers wither,

when the wind sent by the Lord 9  blows on them.

Surely humanity 10  is like grass.

40:8 The grass dries up,

the flowers wither,

but the decree of our God is forever reliable.” 11
