There is here not only an allusion to the nature of the summer fruit, which must be eaten as soon as gathered, but also a paronomasia upon the words kayitz "summer fruit," and ketz "an end." "Then saidª° the LORDª unto¹ me, Thou hast wellª° seen:ª° for¹ I¹ will hastenª°¹ my wordª to performª° it." {Jer 1:12} + "The prophetsª prophesyª° falsely,ª and the priestsª bear ruleª° by¹ their means;ª and my peopleª loveª° [to have it] so:¹ and what¹ will ye doª° in the endª thereof?" {Jer 5:31} + "They huntª° our steps,ª that we cannot go²°¹¹ in our streets:ª our endª is near,ª° our daysª are fulfilled;ª° for¹ our endª is come.ª°" {Lam 4:18} + "Also, thou¹ sonª of man,ª thus¹ saithª° the Lordª GODª unto the landª of Israel;ª An end,ª the endª is comeª° upon¹ the fourª cornersª of the land.ª" {Ezk 7:2} + "But the houseª of Israelª willª° not¹ hearkenª° unto¹ thee; for¹ they willª° not¹ hearkenª° unto¹ me: for¹ all¹ the houseª of Israelª [are] impudentªª and hardhearted.ªª" {Ezk 3:7} + "Moreover he saidª° unto¹ me, Sonª of man,ª¹ all¹ my wordsª that¹ I shall speakª° unto¹ thee receiveª° in thine heart,ª and hearª° with thine ears.ª" {Ezk 3:10} + "Tellª°¹ them therefore,¹ Thus¹ saithª° the Lordª GOD;ª I will make this¹ proverbª¹ to cease,ª° and they shall no¹ more¹ use it as a proverbª°¹ in Israel;ª but¹¹ sayª° unto¹ them, The daysª are at hand,ª° and the effectª of every¹ vision.ª" {Ezk 12:23} + "Therefore¹ thus¹ saithª° the Lordª GOD;ª Behold,¹ I will bringª° a swordª upon¹ thee, and cut offª° manª and beastª out of¹ thee." {Ezk 29:8}
