I replied, "Figs. The good figs are very good, and the bad figs are very bad. They're too bad to be eaten." read more.

I'll look at them with good intentions, and I'll bring them back to this land. I'll build them up. I won't tear them down; I'll plant them and not rip them up. I'll give them the ability to know me, for I am the LORD. They will be my people, and I will be their God when they return to me with all their heart. ""Like the bad figs that are too bad to be eaten for this is what the LORD says so I'll give up on Zedekiah king of Judah, along with his officials, the remnant of Jerusalem that is left in this land, and those living in the land of Egypt. I'll make them into a horrifying sight to all the kingdoms of the earth; into a cause for contempt, into a byword, into a taunt, and into a curse in all the places to which I drive them. I'll send the sword, famine, and plague against them until they're completely destroyed from the land which I gave them and their ancestors.'"
