And if a tenth remains in it,
it will be burned again,
like a terebinth or like an oak
whose stump remains when it is cut down.
The holy seed is its stump.” Bible other translations

“The holy seed is its stump.” The stump is the seed, the offspring. After the tree is cut down, the stump is left; and after the majority of the people are killed or captured, the “stump” is left to propagate.
