|Ezekiel 15 |
1 And the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
2 "Son of man, how is the grapevine better than any tree, or branch which is among the trees of the forest?
3 Can wood be taken from it to do any work? Or will men make a pin of it to hang a vessel on it?
4 Behold, it is cast into the fire for fuel; the fire devours both the ends of it, and the middle of it is charred. Is it useful for any work?
5 Behold, when it was whole, it was not useful for any work; how much less shall it be useful for any work, when the fire has devoured it and it is charred?
6 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD, Like the grapevine among the trees of the forest, which I have given as fuel for the fire, so I will give up the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
7 And I will set my face against them; they will go out from one fire, and another fire shall devour them; and you shall know that I am the LORD, when I set my face against them.
8 And I will make the land desolate because they have been unfaithful," says the Lord GOD.
