World English Bible
"For there is hope for a tree, If it is cut down, that it will sprout again, that the tender branch of it will not cease.
Young's Literal Translation

There are also certain trees, the fibres of which are so solid, that if after several years they be steeped in water, they resume their vigor, the tubes dilate, and the blossoms or flowers which were attached to them expand; as I have often witnessed in what is called the rose of Jericho. There are few trees which will not send forth new shoots, when the stock is cut down level with the earth.

Job's Question, Jesus' Answer
Whether There is to be a Resurrection of the Body?

So look away from him and let him alone, till he has put in his time like a hired laborer.
Its roots may grow old in the ground and its stump die in the soil,
And though a tenth remains in the land, it will again be laid waste. But as the terebinth and oak leave stumps when they are cut down, so the holy seed will be the stump in the land."
But let the stump and its roots, bound with iron and bronze, remain in the ground, in the grass of the field. "'Let him be drenched with the dew of heaven, and let him live with the animals among the plants of the earth.
