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?

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 devours both the ends of it, and the midst of it is burned. Is it meet for any work?

5

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 has devoured it, and it is burned?

6

Therefore thus says 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 all of 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 committed a trespass, says the Lord GOD.
