9-10"'God, the Master, says,
Will it thrive?
Won't he just pull it up by the roots
and leave the grapes to rot
And the branches to shrivel up,
a withered, dead vine?
It won't take much strength
or many hands to pull it up.
Even if it's transplanted,
will it thrive?
When the hot east wind strikes it,
won't it shrivel up?
Won't it dry up and blow away
from the place where it was planted?'"
11-12God's Message came to me: "Tell this house of rebels, 'Do you get it? Do you know what this means?'
