Chapter Overview

God by the similitude of a vine, foreshews the utter destruction of Jerusalem, verse 1-8.

Verse 2
The vine-tree - Israel is here compared to a vine, which, when fruitless, is utterly unprofitable. This the prophet minds them of to humble them, and awaken them to fruitfulness. A branch - One branch of a tree in the forest is of more use than the whole vine-tree is, except for its fruit.

Verse 3
A pin - Will it afford even a pin to drive into a wall or post, on which you may safely fasten any weight.

Verse 4
For fuel - When for its barrenness it is cut down, it is fit only to burn.

Verse 6
Given - Doomed for food to the fire.

Verse 8
Because - They have been so perpetually trespassing, that it seems a continued act.
