Ezekiel 15

Ezekiel Chapter 15

3By the unfitness of the vine branch for any work 6is shewed the utter rejection of Jerusalem.
1 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, What is the 1vine tree more than any tree, or than a branch which is among the trees of the forest?
3 Shall wood be taken thereof to do any work? or will men take a pin of it to hang any vessel thereon?
4 1Behold, it is cast into 2the fire for fuel; the fire devoureth both the ends of it, and the midst of it is burned. aIs it meet for any work?
5 Behold, when it was whole, it was ameet 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; 1As 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 1I will set my face against them; 2they shall go out from one fire, and another fire shall devour them; and 3ye shall know that I am the Lord, when I set my face against them.
8 And 1I will make the land desolate, because they have acommitted a trespass, saith the Lord God.
