Jerusalem like a Useless Vine

1 Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 2 "Son of man, how is the wood of the 1vine better than any wood of a branch which is among the trees of the forest? 3 "Can wood be taken from it to make aanything, or can men take a peg from it on which to hang any vessel? 4 "bIf it has been put into the 2fire for fuel, and the fire has consumed both of its ends and its middle part has been charred, is it then useful for canything? 5 "Behold, while it is intact, it is not made into danything. How much less, when the fire has consumed it and it is charred, can it still be made into eanything! 6 "Therefore, thus says the Lord fGOD, 'As the wood of the vine among the trees of the forest, which I have given to the fire for fuel, so have I given up the inhabitants of Jerusalem; 7 and I 3set My face against them. Though they have 4come out of the fire, yet the fire will consume them. Then you will know that I am the LORD, when I set My face against them. 8 'Thus I will make the land desolate, because they have 5acted unfaithfully,' " declares the Lord GOD.
