6 his shoots shall spread out; his beauty shall be like the olive, and his fragrance like Lebanon. 6 his young shoots will grow. His splendor will be like an olive tree, his fragrance like a cedar of Lebanon.
7 They shall return and dwell beneath my shadow; they shall flourish like the grain; they shall blossom like the vine; their fame shall be like the wine of Lebanon. 7 Men will dwell again in his shade. He will flourish like the grain. He will blossom like a vine, and his fame will be like the wine from Lebanon.
