Genesis 3:18 (c) This is a very fitting symbol of the sticking, stinging troubles of life which have come upon us because of the curse. It represents the smallest of our troubles. The briers are larger troubles. Brambles are still larger, and thorns are the largest and the worst of all injuries, sins and difficulties. Thorns were placed upon our Lord JESUS because He suffered the greatest and the most severe of all troubles that come to human beings. (See under BRAMBLE, BRIER and THORN).

2 Kings 14:9 (a) Amaziah, the King of Judah, is this thistle. He was an annoying person, as thistles are annoying. He was meddling with trouble, and causing difficulties that never should have existed. (See2Ch 25:18).
