At that time Jesus declared, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children.”
The tree grew and became strong,
and its top reached to heaven,
and it was visible to the end of the whole earth.
Its leaves were beautiful and its fruit abundant,
and in it was food for all.
The beasts of the field found shade under it,
and the birds of the heavens lived in its branches,
and all flesh was fed from it.
