Fruit = product of a plant; the effect or consequence of one’s work product; result; offspring

That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,

which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—

whatever they do prospers.

The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life,

and the one who is wise saves lives.

Proverbs 12:14

From the fruit of their lips people are filled with good things,

and the work of their hands brings them reward.

Isaiah 11:1-3a

1A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse;

from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.

The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him—

the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding,

the Spirit of counsel and of might,

the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord—

3a and he will delight in the fear of the Lord.

Isaiah 27:2-6

In that day—

“Sing about a fruitful vineyard:

I, the Lord, watch over it;

I water it continually.

I guard it day and night

so that no one may harm it.

I am not angry.

If only there were briers & thorns confronting me!

I would march against them in battle;

I would set them all on fire.

Or else let them come to me for refuge;

let them make peace with me,

yes, let them make peace with me.”

In days to come Jacob will take root,

Israel will bud and blossom

and fill all the world with fruit.

The fruit of that righteousness will be peace;

its effect will be quietness and confidence forever.

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,

whose confidence is in him.

They will be like a tree planted by the water

that sends out its roots by the stream.

It does not fear when heat comes;

its leaves are always green.

It has no worries in a year of drought

and never fails to bear fruit.”

Hosea 10:12

Sow righteousness for yourselves,

reap the fruit of unfailing love,

and break up your unplowed ground;

for it is time to seek the Lord,

until he comes

and showers his righteousness on you.

Take words with you

and return to the Lord.

Say to him:

“Forgive all our sins

and receive us graciously,

that we may offer the fruit of our lips.”
