Green energy is a term used to describe sources of energy that are considered to be environmentally friendly and non-polluting. What does green mean in the bible?

Green is primarily associated with plant life. As a result we can view it as a symbol of natural growth and life. The exception is its use in Leviticus to denote disease.

Direct Meaning:

* describing a meat offering - Leviticus 2:14
* describing edible plants - Genesis 1:30; 9:3, II Kings 19:26, Job 39:8, Psalm 37:2
* trees - Exodus 10:15, Deuteronomy 12:2, I Kings 14:23, 2 Kings 16:4; 17:10, II Chronicles 28:4, Psalm 37:35; 52:8, Isaiah 37:27, Jeremiah 2:20

Opposite Meaning:

* disease - Leviticus 13:49; 14:37

Color Symbolism:

* rest - Psalm 23:2
* life - Isaiah 15:6, Psalm 23:2, Ezekiel 17:24, Luke 23:31
* growth - Ezekiel 17:24
* fruitful - Jeremiah 11:16; 17:8, Hosea 14:8, Luke 23:31
* fresh / undefiled - Song of Solomon 1:16, Luke 23:31
* maturity - Job 15:31-32
* frailty - Psalm 37:2

Associated Symbols:

* grass - man / flesh (Psalm 37:1-2; 92:7; Revelation 8:7, I Peter 1:24, Isaiah 40:6-8; 51:12), weakness (Psalm 102:4; 102:11, Revelation 8:7), growth (Psalm 72:16; 92:7, Job 5:25)
* trees - coverage (Psalm 37:35), trust (Psalm 52:8), man (Matthew 3:10; 7:15-18, Mark 8:24), The Cross (Acts 5:30, I Peter 2:24)
