When you Arrive to the Land

Leviticus 19: 23

When you arrive to the land

And you shall first plant any tree,

And the tree shall give off its fruit

And the land – its crops.

There is a time for planting trees

And there is a time for planting and building.

 

And you shall sit, each man under his vine

And under his fig tree,

And you shall be likened to a tree planted

on streams of water,

There is a time for planting.
