Salix japonica Thunb. fide NPM Notes (Weeping Willow):

And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the water courses.

Isaiah 44:4 (KJV)

They shall spring up like grass amid waters, like willows by flowing streams.

Isaiah 44:4 (RSV)

And they will certainly spring up among the green grass, like poplars by the water ditches streams.

Isaiah 44:4 (NWT)

Zohary suggests that if the willows of the Bible were native to the Holy Land, they would have been Salix acmophylla or Salix alba, which hybridize readily. I suggest that romantics like me like the idea of the weeping willow, Salix babylonica, in their biblical garden.
