Deuteronomy 28:39

Deuteronomy 28:39

Thou shalt plant vineyards, and dress [them]
Plant them and prune them, in expectation of much fruit from them:

but shall neither drink [of] the wine nor gather [the grapes];
so far from drinking of the wine of them, that they should not be able to gather any grapes from them:

for the worms shall eat them;
a sort of worms pernicious to vines, which the Greeks call "ipes", or "ikes" F15; and the Latins "convolvuli" and "volvoces", as Pliny F16.


F15 See Bochart. Hierozoic. par. 2. l. 4. c. 27. col. 622, 623.
