For you will be like a tree whose leaves wither, like an orchard 1 that is unwatered.
You will be like an oak with fading leaves, like a garden without water.
For you will be like an oak whose leaf fades away Or as a garden that has no water.
You will wither away like an oak or garden without water.
You'll end up like an oak tree with all its leaves falling off, Like an unwatered garden, withered and brown.
For you will be like a tree whose leaves have become dry, and like a garden without water.
For you shall be like an oak whose leaf withers, and like a garden without water.
For you shall be as a terebinth whose leaf fades, And as a garden that has no water.
For ye shall be as an oak
and as a garden
that hath no water
