Ezekiel 15:6-8

Context

15:6 “Therefore, this is what the sovereign Lord says: Like the wood of the vine is among the trees of the forest which I have provided as fuel for the fire – so I will provide the residents of Jerusalem 1  as fuel. 2  15:7 I will set 3  my face against them – although they have escaped from the fire, 4  the fire will still consume them! Then you will know that I am the Lord, when I set my face against them. 15:8 I will make 5  the land desolate because they have acted unfaithfully, declares the sovereign Lord.”
