Tevet 9, 5777

Can the papyrus grow up
without a marsh?
Can the reeds flourish
without water?
While it is yet green
and not cut down,
it withers before any other plant.
So are the paths of all 
who forget God;
and the hope of the hypocrite
shall perish,
whose confidence shall be cut off,
and whose trust is a spider's web.
He leans on his house,
but it does not stand.
He holds it fast,
but it does not endure.
Job 8:11-15
