SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:3 Y di: Así dijo el Señor DIOS sobre Jerusalén: Tu habitación y tu raza fue de la tierra de Canaán; tu padre amorreo, y tu madre hetea.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ezekiel 16:3 Verse 3. Thy birth and thy nativity is of the land of Canaan] It would dishonour Abraham to say that you sprung from him: ye are rather Canaanites than Israelites. The Canaanites were accursed; so are ye.
Thy father was an Amorite, and thy mother a Hittite.] These tribes were the most famous, and probably the most corrupt, of all the Canaanites. So Isaiah calls the princes of Judah rulers of Sodom, chap. i. 10; and John the Baptist calls the Pharisees a generation or brood of vipers, Matt. iii. 7.
There is a fine specimen of this kind of catachresis in Dido's invective against AEneas:- Nec tibi Diva parens, generis nec Dardanus auctor, Perflde; sed duris genuit te cautibus horrens Caucasus, Hyrcanaeque admorunt ubera tigres. AEn. lib. iv. 365.
"False as thou art, and more than false, forsworn; Not sprung from noble blood, nor goddess born: But hewn from hardened entrails of a rock, - And rough Hyrcanian tigers gave thee suck." DRYDEN.
This is strong: but the invective of the prophet exceeds it far. It is the essence of degradation to its subject; and shows the Jews to be as base and contemptible as they were abominable and disgusting.
Matthew Henry Commentary
Jerusalem like an unfruitful vine.
If a vine be fruitful, it is valuable. But if not fruitful, it is worthless and useless, it is cast into the fire. Thus man is capable of yielding a precious fruit, in living to God; this is the sole end of his existence; and if he fails in this, he is of no use but to be destroyed. What blindness then attaches to those who live in the tota neglect of God and of true religion! This similitude is applied to Jerusalem. Let us beware of an unfruitful profession. Let us come to Christ, and seek to abide in him, and to have his words abide in us __________________________________________________________________
