Vintage

Concise Bible Dictionary:

The time of rejoicing when the grapes were gathered. As there were different elevations in the land, the grapes would not be all ripe at the same time. In reference to the future time of blessing for Israel it is said, “Your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time” (Lev. 26:55And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time: and ye shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely. (Leviticus 26:5); Judg. 8:22And he said unto them, What have I done now in comparison of you? Is not the gleaning of the grapes of Ephraim better than the vintage of Abiezer? (Judges 8:2); Job 24:66They reap every one his corn in the field: and they gather the vintage of the wicked. (Job 24:6); Isa. 24:1313When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done. (Isaiah 24:13); Isa. 32:1010Many days and years shall ye be troubled, ye careless women: for the vintage shall fail, the gathering shall not come. (Isaiah 32:10); Jer. 48:3232O vine of Sibmah, I will weep for thee with the weeping of Jazer: thy plants are gone over the sea, they reach even to the sea of Jazer: the spoiler is fallen upon thy summer fruits and upon thy vintage. (Jeremiah 48:32); Mic. 7:11Woe is me! for I am as when they have gathered the summer fruits, as the grapegleanings of the vintage: there is no cluster to eat: my soul desired the firstripe fruit. (Micah 7:1); Zech. 11:22Howl, fir tree; for the cedar is fallen; because the mighty are spoiled: howl, O ye oaks of Bashan; for the forest of the vintage is come down. (Zechariah 11:2)). See SEASONS.
