"I am the true vine, and my Father is thevinedresser. Every branch in me that does notbear fruit he takes away, and every branch thatdoes bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear morefruit. Already you are clean because of the wordthat I have spoken to you. Abide in me, and I inyou. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself,unless it abides in the vine, neither can you,unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are thebranches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, heit is that bears much fruit, for apart from me youcan do nothing.
If anyone does not abide in me he is thrownaway like a branch and withers; and thebranches are gathered, thrown into the fire,and burned. If you abide in me, and my wordsabide in you, ask whatever you wish, and itwill be done for you. By this my Father isglorified, that you bear much fruit and soprove to be my disciples.” John 15:1-8 (ESV)
Let me sing for my beloved my love song concerning his vineyard:My beloved had a vineyard on a very fertile hill.He dug it and cleared it of stones, and planted it with choice vines;he built a watchtower in the midst of it, and hewed out a wine vat in it;and he looked for it to yield grapes, but it yielded wild grapes.
And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem and men of Judah,judge between me and my vineyard. Whatmore was there to do for my vineyard, that I have not done in it?When I looked for it to yield grapes, why did it yield wild grapes?
And now I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard.I will remove its hedge, and it shall be devoured;I will break down its wall, and it shall be trampled down.I will make it a waste; it shall not be pruned or hoed, and briers and thorns shall grow up;I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it.
For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel,and the men of Judah are his pleasant planting;and he looked for justice, but behold, bloodshed;for righteousness, but behold, an outcry! Isaiah 5:1-7 (ESV)
Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers;but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.
He is like a tree planted by streams of waterthat yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither.In all that he does, he prospers. Psalm 1:1-3 (ESV)
"Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose trust is the LORD.He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream,and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green,and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.“ Jeremiah 17:7-8 (ESV)
