Treasury of Scripture Knowledge: Ezekiel 15

Chapter 15

Son of man, What is the vine tree more than any tree, or than a branch which is among the trees of the forest?


The vine is only noble and useful while producing fruit: for, when cut down, its wood is fit only for fuel. So Israel, having ceased to be fruitful, they are good for nothing, but, like a withered branch of a vine, to be burnt.
