Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
And it shall come to pass in that day, that every place shall be, where there were a thousand vines at a thousand silverlings, it shall even be for briers and thorns.
A thousand vines
Song of Songs 8:11
Solomon had a vineyard at Baal-hamon. He let out the vineyard to keepers. Every one for the fruit of it was to bring a thousand [pieces] of silver.
Hear ye another parable. There was a certain man who was a house-ruler, who planted a vineyard, and placed a hedge around it, and dug a winepress in it, and built a tower, and leased it to farmers, and went on a journey.
Be for briers
And I will lay it waste. It shall not be pruned nor hoed, but there shall come up briers and thorns. I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it.
They shall beat upon the breasts for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vine.
But producing thorns and thistles it is unfit and near a curse, the end of which is for burning.
And the cities that are inhabited shall be laid waste, and the land shall be a desolation. And ye shall know that I am LORD.
