And all the trees of the field will know
that I am Yahweh.
I bring down the high tree,
exalt the low tree,
dry up the green tree
and make the dry tree to flourish.
I, Yahweh, have spoken
and I will do it.’” Bible

“trees.” In this context, a “tree” is a person. This is the figure of speech hypocatastasis. [For more on trees being people, see commentary on Luke 3:9. For more on hypocatastasis, see commentary on Rev. 20:2].
