Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying: 1 The word of the LORD came to me:
2 Son of man, what shall be made of the wood of the vine, out of all the trees of the woods that are among the trees of the forests? 2 "Son of man, how is the wood of a vine better than that of a branch on any of the trees in the forest?
3 Shall wood be taken of it, to do any work, or shall a pin be made of it for any vessel to hang thereon? 3 Is wood ever taken from it to make anything useful? Do they make pegs from it to hang things on?
4 Behold it is cast into the fire for fuel: the fire hath consumed both ends thereof, and the midst thereof is reduced to ashes: shall it be useful for any work? 4 And after it is thrown on the fire as fuel and the fire burns both ends and chars the middle, is it then useful for anything?
5 Even when it was whole it was not fit for work: how much less, when the fire hath devoured and consumed it, shall any work be made of it? 5 If it was not useful for anything when it was whole, how much less can it be made into something useful when the fire has burned it and it is charred?
6 Therefore thus saith the Lord God: As the vine tree among the trees of the forests which I have given to the fire to be consumed, so will I deliver up the inhabitants of Jerusalem. 6 "Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: As I have given the wood of the vine among the trees of the forest as fuel for the fire, so will I treat the people living in Jerusalem.
7 And I will set my face against them: they shall go out from fire, and fire shall consume them: and you shall know that I am the Lord, when I shall have set my face against them. 7 I will set my face against them. Although they have come out of the fire, the fire will yet consume them. And when I set my face against them, you will know that I am the LORD.
8 And I shall have made their land a wilderness, and desolate, because they have been transgressors, saith the Lord God. 8 I will make the land desolate because they have been unfaithful, declares the Sovereign LORD."
