And it shall come to pass in that day; [that] every place
Barren and unfruitful, for want of men to till the ground: where there were a thousand vines at a thousand silverlings;
which were so good, as to be sold or let out for so many silver shekels F13; or the fruit of them came to such a price; see ( Song of Solomon 8:11 ) : it shall [even] be for briers and thorns;
for want of persons to stock the ground and cultivate it.
F13 Which was about two shillings and sixpence of our money.
