2 And on this aside and on that side of the river was the 1btree of life, producing twelve 2cfruits, yielding its fruit 3each 4month; and the 5dleaves of the tree are for the ehealing of the fnations.
25 The leaves of the tree of life are for the healing of the nations. In the Bible, leaves are a symbol of man's deeds (Gen. 3:7). The leaves of the tree of life symbolize the deeds of Christ. The regenerated believers eat the fruit of the tree of life, receiving Christ as their inward life and life supply, that they may enjoy the divine life for eternity, whereas the restored nations are healed by the leaves of the tree of life, taking the deeds of Christ as their outward guide and regulation, that they may live the human life forever.
