Chapter 15

Jerusalem like a Useless Vine

1 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

2 “Son of man, how is the wood of the avine better than any wood of a branch which is among the trees of the forest?

3 “Can wood be taken from it to make 1anything, or can men take a peg from it on which to hang any vessel?

4 “1If it has been put into the afire for fuel, and the fire has consumed both of its ends and its middle part has been charred, is it then useful for 2anything?

5 “Behold, while it is intact, it is not made into 1anything. How much less, when the fire has consumed it and it is charred, can it still be made into 1anything!

6 “Therefore, thus says the Lord 1God, ‘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;

7 and I aset My face against them. Though they have bcome 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.

8 ‘Thus I will make the land desolate, because they have aacted unfaithfully,’ ” declares the Lord God.

About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update

The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
