Isaiah 28:4 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

The fading flower of his beautiful splendor,
which is on the summit above the rich valley,
will be like a ripe fig before the summer harvest.
Whoever sees it will swallow it
while it is still in his hand.

Hosea 9:10 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Ephraim Bereaved of Offspring

10 I discovered Israel
like grapes in the wilderness.
I saw your fathers
like the first fruit of the fig tree in its first season.
But they went to Baal-peor,
consecrated themselves to Shame,[a]
and became detestable,
like the thing they loved.

Micah 7:1 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Israel’s Moral Decline

How sad for me!
For I am like one who—
when the summer fruit has been gathered
after the gleaning of the grape harvest
finds no grape cluster to eat,
no early fig, which I crave.
