Vines aren't Fine
- In this super-short chapter, God asks Ezekiel what a forest vine can be used for, posing rhetorical questions like, "Can you make it into a peg?" Answer: No.
- God says forest vines are only good for burning. After that, they're good for nothing.
- God says this is an analogy for the people of Jerusalem. They're totally worthless, so he's going to burn them and kill them. Even if they try to escape the fire they'll fall back into it.
- God will punish them for their faithlessness by making the land totally desolate.
