The Bible is filled with illustrations from the agricultural practices and daily life activities of ancient Israel. We frequently pass over these images because we no longer understand the practices.
Here is an interesting one. In describing the happy home, one of the Psalms of Ascent says this,
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table. (Psalms 128:3 ESV)
I must have photographed a dozen different examples of what the writer is alluding to. Perhaps this one will help you to enjoy it a little better.
