Passage: Jacob 3:31 - Jacob 3:51
31 For behold, thus saith the Lord: "I will liken thee, O house of Israel, like unto a tame olive tree which a man took and nourished in his vineyard, And it grew and waxed old and began to decay.
32 "And it came to pass that the Master of the vineyard went forth and He saw that His olive tree began to decay; And He saith: 'I will prune it and dig about it and nourish it, that perhaps it may shoot forth young and tender branches and it perish not.'
33 "And it came to pass that He pruned it and digged about it and nourished it according to His word.
34 "And it came to pass that after many days it began to put forth somewhat a little, young and tender branches; But behold, the main top thereof began to perish.
35 "And it came to pass that the Master of the vineyard saw it and He saith unto His Servant: 'It grieveth Me that I should lose this tree;
36 Wherefore, go and pluck the branches from a wild olive tree and bring them hither unto Me, And We will pluck off those main branches which are beginning to wither away, And We will cast them into the fire that they may be burned.
37 'And behold,' saith the Lord of the vineyard, 'I take away many of these young and tender branches and I will graft them whithersoever I will;
38 And it mattereth not that if it so be that the root of this tree will perish, I may preserve the fruit thereof unto Myself;
39 Wherefore, I will take these young and tender branches and I will graft them whithersoever I will;
40 Take Thou the branches of the wild olive tree and graft them in, in the stead thereof;
41 And these which I have plucked off I will cast into the fire and burn them, that they may not cumber the ground of My vineyard.'
42 "And it came to pass that the Servant of the Lord of the vineyard did according to the word of the Lord of the vineyard and grafted in the branches of the wild olive tree;
43 And the Lord of the vineyard caused that it should be digged about and pruned and nourished, saying unto His Servant: 'It grieveth Me that I should lose this tree;
44 Wherefore, that perhaps I might preserve the roots thereof, that they perish not, that I might preserve them unto Myself, I have done this thing;
45 Wherefore, go Thy way; Watch the tree and nourish it according to My words;
46 And these will I place in the nethermost part of My vine- yard, whithersoever I will-it mattereth not unto Thee;
47 And I do it that I may preserve unto Myself the natural branches of the tree, And also that I may lay up fruit thereof against the season unto Myself, for it grieveth Me that I should lose this tree and the fruit thereof.'
48 "And it came to pass that the Lord of the vineyard went His way and hid the natural branches of the tame olive tree in the nethermost parts of the vineyard, Some in one and some in another, according to His will and pleasure.
49 "And it came to pass that a long time passed away; And the Lord of the vineyard saith unto His Servant: 'Come, let Us go down into the vineyard that We may labor in the vineyard.'
50 "And it came to pass that the Lord of the vineyard, and also the Servant, went down into the vineyard to labor.
51 "And it came to pass that the Servant saith unto His Master: 'Behold, look here! Behold the tree!'
