Jerusalem A Useless Vine

2 "Son of Man, how does wood from a vine compare to a branch taken from any of the trees in the forest? 3 Is wood ever taken from it to make anything practical? Can it even be made into a peg to hang something on? 4 After all, it's useful only for kindling a fire, isn't it? And once you've burnt up the ends and charred through the middle of it, is it useful for anything else?
