‘When I wanted to gather them,
There are no grapes on the vine.
There are no figs on the fig tree.
Even the leaves are withered.
What I gave them
Has passed away from them.”
Yahweh compared Judah to a vine that had no grapes, as well as a fig tree than had no figs. Even the leaves were withered up. Whatever Yahweh had given to them was gone. They were barren.
