you will help your seed to sprout,
but the harvest will vanish

The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, pose a riddle and speak a parable to the house of Israel. You are to say: This is what the Lord God says:A great eagle with great wings, long pinions,

came to Lebanon and took the top of the cedar.read more.
He plucked off its topmost shoot,
brought it to the land of merchants,
and set it in a city of traders. Then he took some of the land’s seed
and put it in a fertile field;
he set it like a willow,
a plant by abundant waters. It sprouted and became a spreading vine,
low in height with its branches turned toward him,
yet its roots stayed under it.
So it became a vine,
produced branches, and sent out shoots. But there was another great eagle
with great wings and thick plumage.
And this vine bent its roots toward him!
It stretched out its branches to him
from its planting bed,
so that he might water it. It had been planted
in a good field by abundant waters
in order to produce branches,
bear fruit, and become a splendid vine. You are to say: This is what the Lord God says:Will it flourish?
Will he not tear out its roots
and strip off its fruit
so that it shrivels?
All its fresh leaves will wither!
Great strength and many people
will not be needed to pull it from its roots. Even though it is planted, will it flourish?
Won’t it completely wither
when the east wind strikes it?
It will wither on the bed where it sprouted.”

I’m angry enough to die!” So the Lord said, “You cared about the plant, which you did not labor over and did not grow. It appeared in a night and perished in a night. Should I not care about the great city of Nineveh, which has more than 120,000 people who cannot distinguish between their right and their left, as well as many animals?”

In fact, it is put into the fire as fuel. The fire devours both of its ends, and the middle is charred. Can it be useful for anything? Even when it was whole it could not be made into a useful object. How much less can it ever be made into anything useful when the fire has devoured it and it is charred! “Therefore, this is what the Lord God says: Like the wood of the vine among the trees of the forest, which I have given to the fire as fuel, so I will give up the residents of Jerusalem.
You uprooted a vine from Egypt;
You drove out the nations and planted it. You cleared a place for it;
it took root and filled the land. The mountains were covered by its shade,
and the mighty cedars with its branches.read more.
It sent out sprouts toward the Sea
and shoots toward the River. Why have You broken down its walls
so that all who pass by pick its fruit? The boar from the forest tears it
and creatures of the field feed on it. Return, God of Hosts.
Look down from heaven and see;
take care of this vine, the root Your right hand has planted,
the shoot that You made strong for Yourself. It was cut down and burned up;
they perish at the rebuke of Your countenance. Let Your hand be with the man at Your right hand,
with the son of man
You have made strong for Yourself.
“I am the true vine, and My Father is the vineyard keeper. Every branch in Me that does not produce fruit He removes, and He prunes every branch that produces fruit so that it will produce more fruit. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.read more.
Remain in Me, and I in you. Just as a branch is unable to produce fruit by itself unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in Me. “I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him produces much fruit, because you can do nothing without Me. If anyone does not remain in Me, he is thrown aside like a branch and he withers. They gather them, throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you remain in Me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you want and it will be done for you. My Father is glorified by this: that you produce much fruit and prove to be My disciples.
