|1||And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,|
|2||Son of man, What is the vine tree more than any tree, or than a branch which is among the trees of the forest?||the vine tree|
|3||Shall wood be taken thereof to do any work? or will men take a pin of it to hang any vessel thereon?|
|4||Behold, it is cast into the fire for fuel; the fire devoureth both the ends of it, and the midst of it is burned. Is it meet for any work?|
Behold, when it was whole, it was
meet for no work: how much less shall it be meet yet for any work,
when the fire hath devoured it, and it is burned?
|6||Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; As the vine tree among the trees of the forest, which I have given to the fire for fuel, so will I give the inhabitants of Jerusalem.|
|7||And I will set my face against them; they shall go out from one fire, and another fire shall devour them; and ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I set my face against them.|
And I will make the land
desolate, because they have committed a trespass, saith the Lord GOD.
