(Numbers 13: 25)
Found by searching
These figs - with the grapes,
And pomegranates -
Are fruit of the Land.

(Judges 9:10,11)

Whatever surrounds,
Observe in the fig-tree
Determination to produce
Its sweetness.

(! Kings 4: 25)
Security without anxiety:
Throughout the land dwell
Every man
Under his vine and fig-tree.

(1 Chronicles 12: 40)
Food on asses and camels,
Mules and oxen:meal,
Fig-cakes, raisin-cakes ...
Joy's hospitality.

(Proverbs 27: 18)
Who keepeth the fig-tree - 
Digging about it, labouring,
Putting dung - as reward
Shall eat the fruit thereof.

(Song of Songs 2: 13)
The winter chills,
The chill works
Within.  Sun revives;
The winter figs mellow.

(Isaiah 37: 21)
Even for an irruption
Of vileness from within
The plaster of figs
Provides healing.


  1. "Found by searching", I really like that, I am inspired by this and how you present the scriptures about "figs" which surely have great scriptural significance, and yet without giving any "conclusion" but rather it is the "search" that comes through and makes us want to find out more!! Thank you! Blessings!


  2. "The plaster of figs
    Provides healing."
    This is so interesting!! Oh, I think though it might be Isaiah 38:??
    Reading this, I am thinking about the "healing" of figs and also your comment on my post made me think about the "raisins" too for sustenance, and it seems timely in these times where our world is looking for such "artificial" healing, and how much healing there is in the Scriptures, and even these amazing "hints" , what is the LORD also telling us of how to use the fruits He created for healing.


I'm glad to hear how this strikes you!
