Revelation 6:13

Jesus used the fig tree ( Mark 13:28 ) as a sign of the "end of the world's long winter" (Swete). Cf. Isaiah 34:4 ; Nahum 3:12 . When she is shaken of a great wind (upo anemou megalou seiomenh). Present passive participle of seiw, "being shaken by a great wind." See Matthew 11:7 for the reed so shaken.
