    Verse 8, sin is the primary cause of every curse even the first curse upon man in the Garden of Eden as recorded in Genesis.

    Verse 6: The wayward people were not fit and they were only fit for destruction. They had fallen so far as a result of disobeying Jehovah God.
  • Maria Morales
    According to Ps80:8 Israel is both the vine and the branch. Just like the wood after it has been burned is no good for nothing so would Israel be v.6. Jerusalem was burned literally by Babylon and Rome and the Israelites were cast out of the land and God gave them over to their enemies. Soon he will save them from their enemies Lk1:68 for He is good and His mercy endureth forever.

    A vine springs from one root source out into many opposite directions. Verse 6 shows this symbolism of a vine tree to be the inhabitants of Jerusalem of the future. Ezekiel is shown visions of the future WW3. This is more than one religion springing from a common source and living in the same city which is Jerusalem. The wood of this vine tree is fuel for fire or destruction of the vine itself. The wood is the structure of doctrine that holds a religion together. The differences of doctrine cause rejection of people that do not believe the same way and cause the vine to go into different directions. All want the love of God but do not want to have compassion for men that do not think as they do. When the vine which is a group of opposing religions are together they do not prosper but are in a state of contention. Nothing prospers with hatred and rejection. Verse 7 shows that unless love for all men prevails regardless of differences, then there will always be a consuming fire of war to face. Verse 8, Perhaps the trespass is jealousy and hatred. Love God and love every man as you love yourself. That is the teaching of Jesus. God is perfect, man is not. It is easy to love what is perfect but may be difficult to have love, compassion and mercy for the imperfect.

    God is not partial. disobedience and rebellion against HIM attract his judgment no matter what we have enjoyed from HIM. May we not know the judgment of Go after knowing and enjoying HIS grace and goodness.

    The vine has no choice in the matter. It is all in how it is planted, tended and cared for. It would seem we need looking after too...
