Jerusalem like a Useless Vine

1Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 2“Son of man, [a]how is the wood of the vine better than any wood of a branch which is among the trees of the forest? 3Can wood be taken from it to make [b]anything, or can even a peg be taken from it on which to hang any utensil? 4If it has been put into the fire for fuel, and the fire has consumed both of its ends and its middle part has been charred, is it then good for [c]anything? 5Behold, while it is intact, it is not made into [d]anything. How much less, when the fire has consumed it and it is charred, can it still be made into [e]anything! 6Therefore, this is what the Lord [f]GOD says: ‘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; 7and I set My face against them. Though they have come 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. 8So I will make the land desolate, because they have acted unfaithfully,’” declares the Lord GOD.
