Ezekiel 15 (New Century Version)

View In My Bible
1 The Lord spoke his word to me, saying: 2 "Human, is the wood of the vine better than the wood of any tree in the forest? 3 Can wood be taken from the vine to make anything? Can you use it to make a peg on which to hang something? 4 If the vine is thrown into the fire for fuel, and the fire burns up both ends and starts to burn the middle, is it useful for anything? 5 When the vine was whole, it couldn't be made into anything. When the fire has burned it completely, it certainly cannot be made into anything." 6 So this is what the Lord God says: "Out of all the trees in the forest, I have given the wood of the vine as fuel for fire. In the same way I have given up the people who live in Jerusalem 7 and will turn against them. Although they came through one fire, fire will still destroy them. When I turn against them, you will know that I am the Lord. 8 So I will make the land empty, because the people have not been loyal, says the Lord God."
