I have taken root in a privileged people, in the Lord’s property, in his inheritance. I have grown tall as a cedar in Lebanon, as a cypress on Mt. Hermon; I have grown tall as a palm in Engedi, as the rose bushes of Jericho; as a fine olive in the plain, as a plane tree I have grown tall.
I have grown tall as a Plane tree
A tree that grows beside the water. It sheds its outer bark, the hebrew word means naked.
A responsive prayer:
May I grow beside the living water, staying close to the source of life for the refreshment of my soul. May I live vulnerably, not hiding behind a veneer.
