Quote:
{14:24} Have you not considered how God presents an example, [making] a good word like a good tree, whose root is firmly fixed and its branches [high] in the sky?

I suggest,
{14:24} Did you not see how God struck a parable: A good word is like a good tree; its foundation is firm and its branch [reaches] into the sky?

Quote:
{14:25} It produces its fruit all the time, by permission of its Lord. And God presents examples for the people that perhaps they will be reminded.

I suggest,
{14:25} It produces its esculents every time by permission of its Lord. And God strikes examples for the people that perhaps they may remember.

Quote:
{14:26} And the example of a bad word is like a bad tree, uprooted from the surface of the earth, not having any stability.

I suggest,
{14:26} And the parable of a wicked word is like a wicked tree: ripped from above the land, not for it shall be any basement.
