Job 15:33 New English Translation (NET Bible)

33 Like a vine he will let his sour grapes fall,[a]
and like an olive tree
he will shed his blossoms.[b]


  1. Job 15:33 tn The verb means “to treat violently” or “to wrong.” It indicates that the vine did not nourish the grapes well enough for them to grow, and so they dry up and drop off.
  2. Job 15:33 sn The point is that like the tree the wicked man shows signs of life but produces nothing valuable. The olive tree will have blossoms in the years that it produces no olives, and so eventually drops the blossoms.
