Joel 1:7

He has laid my vine waste, and splintered my fig tree: he has stripped it bare, and cast it away; its branches are made white.
Read Chapter 1

Gregory The Dialogist

AD 604
O wretched beings, who by going after the praises of men waste to themselves all the fruits of their labors, and while they aim to show themselves to the eyes of others, blast all that they do. When the evil spirits prompt them to boastfulness, taking them for a prey they strip bare their works, as we have said. Hence Truth, in setting forth by the prophet the rancor of our old enemies under the form of a particular people, says, “It has laid waste my vines and splintered my fig trees; it has stripped off their bark and thrown it down; their branches are made white.” .

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
