Ezekiel 15

 

 

Verses 1-8

Ezekiel 15:1-8. This is the first of three parables to demonstrate still further the delusion of their false hope that deliverance would come. The vine is a type of Israel Psalms 80:8-19; Isaiah 5:1-30, and Hosea 10:1. The vine is only good for one thing, which is the bearing of fruit; apart from this it is worthless. The wood cannot be used for anything whatever. It is good for nothing but burning. Nebuchadnezzar carried out this sentence 2 Kings 25:9. It reminds us also of the parable of the vine our Lord spoke, in which, speaking of the unfruitful branch, He said, “Men gather them and cast them into the fire, and they are burned” John 15:6. Some apply this also to Israel; it means the professing believer, who professes to be a branch in the true vine.
