The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleDeuteronomy 28:39
Thou shalt plant vineyards, and dress [them]…
and prune them, in expectation of much fruit from them:
but shall neither drink [of] the wine nor gather [the grapes];
from drinking of the wine of them, that they should not be able to
gather any grapes from them:
for the worms shall eat them;
a sort of worms pernicious to vines,
which the Greeks call "ipes", or "ikes" F15; and the Latins
"convolvuli" and "volvoces", as Pliny F16.
F15 See Bochart. Hierozoic. par. 2. l. 4. c. 27. col. 622, 623.
