The fig tree
and he had fenced it and gathered out the stones thereof and planted it with the choicest vine and built a tower in the midst of it and also made a winepress therein; and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes.
Yet I had planted thee a noble vine, a seed of Truth, all of her; how then art thou turned into the degenerate plant of a strange vine unto me?
Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree corrupt and its fruit corrupt; for the tree is known by its fruit.
For a good tree does not bring forth corrupt fruit; neither does a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
For if the firstfruit is holy, so shall the rest be; and if the root is holy, so shall be the branches.
And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter; therefore the name of it was called Marah.
2 Kings 2:19
And the men of the city said unto Elisha, Behold, the seat of this city is good, as my lord sees, but the water is evil, and the ground barren.
Then he said unto me, These waters issue out toward the east country and shall go down into the desert and go into the sea: which being brought forth into the sea, the waters of the sea shall be healed.
