15 2 As the unprofitable wood of the vine tree is cast into the fire, so Jerusalem shall be burnt.
1 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, what cometh of the vine tree above all other trees? and of the vine branch, which is among the [a]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 in the fire to be consumed: the fire consumeth both the ends of it, and the midst of it is burnt. 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 for any work, when the fire hath consumed it, and it is burnt?
6 Therefore thus saith the Lord God, as the vine tree, that is among the trees of the forest, which I have given to the fire to be consumed, so will I give the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
7 And I will set my face against them: they shall go out from one[b]fire, and another fire shall consume them: and ye shall know, that I am the Lord, when I set my face against them,
8 And when I make the land waste, because they have greatly offended, saith the Lord God.
Ezekiel 15:2Which brings forth no fruit, no more than the other trees of the forest do: meaning that if Jerusalem, which bore the name of his Church, did not bring forth fruit it would be utterly destroyed.
Ezekiel 15:7Though they escape one danger, yet another will take them.
