Ezekiel 15

NCV 1 The Lord spoke his word to me, saying: NIV 1 The word of the LORD came to me: NCV 2 "Human, is the wood of the vine better than the wood of any tree in the forest? NIV 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? NCV 3 Can wood be taken from the vine to make anything? Can you use it to make a peg on which to hang something? NIV 3 Is wood ever taken from it to make anything useful? Do they make pegs from it to hang things on? NCV 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? NIV 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? NCV 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." NIV 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? NCV 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 NIV 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. NCV 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. NIV 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. NCV 8 So I will make the land empty, because the people have not been loyal, says the Lord God." NIV 8 I will make the land desolate because they have been unfaithful, declares the Sovereign LORD."
