And from the ground the Lord G-d caused to grow
every tree that was pleasing to the sight and good for food,
with the Tree of Life in the middle of the garden,
and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
While the earth remains,
Seedtime and harvest,
And cold and heat,
And summer and winter,
And day and night Shall not cease.
He who rules people justly,
He who rules in awe of G-d
is like the light of morning at sunrise,
a morning without clouds ~
[bringing] vegetation out of the earth.
2 Samuel 23.3b-4
