Psalm 37:2 (a) This is a type of the weakness, instability and transient character of the ungodly, who soon die and are forgotten. (See also Psalm 90:5; Psalm 92:7; Psalm 103:15; Psalm 129:6).

Psalm 72:16 (a) By this figure the Lord is telling us of the great growth of the nation of Israel numerically. When the blessing of GOD rests upon that nation, then they will flourish again as they once did.

Isaiah 40:6 (a) In this passage the Lord is reminding us that the honors which men bestow, and the position of prominence to which men attain, soon disappear. These are not permanent. The rich man loses his riches; the influential man loses his power; the prominent man becomes obscure, but GOD's gifts are permanent. (See Isaiah 51:12).

Isaiah 44:4 (a) This strange type indicates that GOD's people will grow beautifully among the many people of the world where they are scattered. It indicates that they will be a spiritual people who will be of noble character and godly attributes. This certainly is the future of Israel when they turn again to the Lord.

James 1:11 (a) The rich man in this passage is compared to the grass of the field. His riches disappear, and he himself fades into obscurity. He must lie in the grave side by side with the poor, for there is no difference in death.

1 Peter 1:24 (a) The permanent character of the Scriptures is contrasted with the very short life of grass.
