Chapter 15

1

 And there is a word of Jehovah unto me, saying: 


2

 'Son of man, What is the vine-tree more than any tree? The vine-branch that hath been, Among trees of the forest? 


3

 Is wood taken from it to use for work? Do they take of it a pin to hang any vessel on it? 


4

 Lo, to the fire it hath been given for fuel, Its two ends hath the fire eaten, And its midst hath been scorched! Is it profitable for work? 


5

 Lo, in its being perfect it is not used for work, How much less, when fire hath eaten of it, And it is scorched, Hath it been used yet for work? 


6

 Therefore, thus said the Lord Jehovah: As the vine-tree among trees of the forest, That I have given to the fire for fuel, So I have given the inhabitants of Jerusalem. 


7

 And I have set My face against them, From the fire they have gone forth, And the fire doth consume them, And ye have known that I [am] Jehovah, In My setting My face against them. 


8

 And I have made the land a desolation, Because they have committed a trespass, An affirmation of the Lord Jehovah!' 


Ezekiel 16
