  A VINE was luxuriant in the time of vintage with leaves and

  grapes. A Goat, passing by, nibbled1 its young tendrils and its

  leaves. The Vine addressed him and said: "Why do you thus injure

  me without a cause, and crop my leaves? Is there no young grass

  left? But I shall not have to wait long for my just revenge; for

  if you now should crop my leaves, and cut me down to my root, I

  shall provide the wine to pour over you when you are led as a

  victim to the sacrifice."
