Watching Tree

Jeremiah 1:11-12 NASB … The word of the Lord came to me saying, “What do you see, Jeremiah?” And I said, “I see a rod of an almond tree.” 12 Then the Lord said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over My word to perform it.”

Watching tree, watching tree
Sober and alert as tho you never sleep
Watching tree what do you see?

Aaron’s rod, Root of Jesse –Num 17:8; Is 11:10
Firmly planted by the streams –
Ps 1:3
First to bud first to see
Almond tree –Jer 1:12
A branch
A banner
A golden lamp stand
Aflame before the throne
Shines bright
Full of light
Full of life.

Watching tree, watching tree
Stand strong with the sword of the Spirit
Stand upright shine bright
Guarding against the darkness of the night! –Sos 3:8

Luke 12:35-37  … Keep your loins girded and your lamps burning, 36 And be like men who are waiting for their master to return home from the marriage feast, so that when he returns from the wedding and comes and knocks, they may open to him immediately.
37 Blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are those servants whom the master finds awake and alert and watching[1127] when he comes. Truly I say to you, he will gird himself and have them recline at table and will come and serve them!

From NetBible Lk 12:37

  • watching[1127] = alert, to keep awake, vigilant
