Mark 11:20-21 And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. ... And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.
James 1:10-11 But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away. ...
