CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
15:2 The vine - tree - Israel is here compared to a vine, which, when fruitless, is utterly unprofitable. This the prophet minds them of to humble them, and awaken them to fruitfulness. A branch - One branch of a tree in the forest is of more use than the whole vine - tree is, except for its fruit.
You brought us from Egypt like a grapevine; you drove away the pagan nations and transplanted us into your land.
Now I will sing for the one I love a song about his vineyard: My beloved had a vineyard on a rich and fertile hill.
Then this message came to me from the LORD:
Can its wood be used for making things, like pegs to hang up pots and pans?
How prosperous Israel is--a luxuriant vine loaded with fruit. But the richer the people get, the more pagan altars they build. The more bountiful their harvests, the more beautiful their sacred pillars.
