Youngs Literal Translation


15:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, And there is a word of Jehovah unto me, saying:
15:2 Son of man, What is the vine tree more than any tree, or than a branch which is among the trees of the forest? `Son of man, What is the vine-tree more than any tree? The vine-branch that hath been, Among trees of the forest?
15:3 Shall wood be taken thereof to do any work? or will men take a pin of it to hang any vessel thereon? Is wood taken from it to use for work? Do they take of it a pin to hang any vessel on it?
15:4 Behold, it is cast into the fire for fuel; the fire devoureth both the ends of it, and the midst of it is burned. Is it meet for any work? Lo, to the fire it hath been given for fuel, Its two ends hath the fire eaten, And its midst hath been scorched! Is it profitable for work?
15:5 Behold, when it was whole, it was meet for no work: how much less shall it be meet yet for any work, when the fire hath devoured it, and it is burned? Lo, in its being perfect it is not used for work, How much less, when fire hath eaten of it, And it is scorched, Hath it been used yet for work?
15:6 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; As the vine tree among the trees of the forest, which I have given to the fire for fuel, so will I give the inhabitants of Jerusalem. Therefore, thus said the Lord Jehovah: As the vine-tree among trees of the forest, That I have given to the fire for fuel, So I have given the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
15:7 And I will set my face against them; they shall go out from one fire, and another fire shall devour them; and ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I set my face against them. And I have set My face against them, From the fire they have gone forth, And the fire doth consume them, And ye have known that I `am' Jehovah, In My setting My face against them.
15:8 And I will make the land desolate, because they have committed a trespass, saith the Lord GOD. And I have made the land a desolation, Because they have committed a trespass, An affirmation of the Lord Jehovah!'
