The Parable of Two Eagles and a Vine
5He took some of the seed of the land and planted it in fertile soil; he placed it by abundant waters; he set it out like a willow. 6It sprouted and became a spreading vine, low in height with branches turned toward him; yet its roots remained where it stood. So it became a vine and yielded branches, and sent out shoots. 7But there was another great eagle with great wings and many feathers. And behold, this vine bent its roots toward him. It stretched out its branches to him from its planting bed, so that he might water it.…

(6) A spreading vine of low stature.--Had Zedekiah been faithful to his oath and allegiance to Nebuchadnezzar and to his higher allegiance to God, Israel might have been fruitful and prosperous as a dependent kingdom.

Whose branches turned towards him.--Better, That its branches might turn towards him, and its roots might be under him. This was Nebuchadnezzar's object--to make of Israel a flourishing kingdom, which should yet be entirely dependent upon himself and helpful to him in his great struggle with the power of Egypt; and hence his especial rage when his politic arrangements were frustrated by Zedekiah's treachery and folly.

17:1-10 Mighty conquerors are aptly likened to birds or beasts of prey, but their destructive passions are overruled to forward God's designs. Those who depart from God, only vary their crimes by changing one carnal confidence for another, and never will prosper.
