|Luke 13:5-7 |
5 I tell you, no. But unless you repent, all of you will also perish." [From the Word of the Lord within: "We must be brought under the control of God by repentance. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth, who stand forth without repentance!" The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, ...but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 2 Pet 3:9.]
6 He also spoke this parable: "A certain man had a fig tree, planted in his vineyard, and he came to look for fruit on it, but found none.
7 Then he said to the keeper of his vineyard, 'Behold, for three years I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree and found none. Cut it down. Why should it cumber [use up] the ground?'
