“When the poor and needy seek for water, and there is none, and their tongue is parched with thirst, I the LORD will answer them; I the God of Israel will not forsake them.

I will put in the wilderness the cedar, the acacia, the myrtle, ad the olive. I will set in the desert the cypress, the plane and the pine together, that men may see and know, may consider and understand together, that the hand of the LORD has done this, the Holy One of Israel has created it.” ~Isaiah 41:17-20
