The word of ADONAI came to me:
"Human being, why should wood from a grapevine be better than some other kind of wood, than some branch that one might find among the trees of the forest?
Its wood can't be used to make anything, not even a pin on which to hang a pot.
So now it is thrown in the fire as fuel, the fire consumes both ends of it, and the middle of it is singed is it useful now for making something?
When it was whole, it was good for nothing; so how much less, when the fire has consumed it, and it is singed, will it be useful for making something!
"So Adonai ELOHIM says this: 'Like wood from the vine among the trees of the forest, which I consign to the fire as fuel, so I give those living in Yerushalayim.
I will set my face against them they may have escaped one fire, but the fire will consume them yet. When I set my face against them, you will know that I am ADONAI.
I will make the land desolate because they have dealt so treacherously,' says Adonai ELOHIM."
