Isaiah 40:6-8 English Standard Version (ESV)

The Word of God Stands Forever

A voice says, “Cry!”
    And I said,[a] “What shall I cry?”
All flesh is grass,
    and all its beauty[b] is like the flower of the field.
The grass withers, the flower fades
    when the breath of the Lord blows on it;
    surely the people are grass.
The grass withers, the flower fades,
    but the word of our God will stand forever.
