Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:1 - Let me sing, I pray you, for my beloved, A song of my beloved as to his vineyard: My beloved hath a vineyard in a fruitful hill,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:2 - And he fenceth it, and casteth out its stones, And planteth it with a choice vine, And buildeth a tower in its midst, And also a wine press hath hewn out in it, And he waiteth for the yielding of grapes, And it yieldeth bad ones!

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:3 - And now, O inhabitant of Jerusalem, and man of Judah, Judge, I pray you, between me and my vineyard.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:4 - What -- to do still to my vineyard, That I have not done in it! Wherefore, I waited to the yielding of grapes, And it yieldeth bad ones!

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:5 - And now, pray, let me cause you to know, That which I am doing to my vineyard, To turn aside its hedge, And it hath been for consumption, To break down its wall, And it hath been for a treading-place.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:6 - And I make it a waste, It is not pruned, nor arranged, And gone up have brier and thorn, And on the thick clouds I lay a charge, From raining upon it rain.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:7 - Because the vineyard of Jehovah of Hosts Is the house of Israel, And the man of Judah His pleasant plant, And He waiteth for judgment, and lo, oppression, For righteousness, and lo, a cry.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:8 - Wo to those joining house to house, Field to field they bring near, till there is no place, And ye have been settled by yourselves In the midst of the land!

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:9 - By the weapons of Jehovah of Hosts Do not many houses a desolation become? Great and good without inhabitant!

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:10 - For ten acres of vineyard do yield one bath, And an homer of seed yieldeth an ephah.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:11 - Wo to those rising early in the morning, Strong drink they pursue! Tarrying in twilight, wine inflameth them!

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:12 - And harp, and psaltery, tabret, and pipe, And wine, have been their banquets, And the work of Jehovah they behold not, Yea, the work of His hands they have not seen.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:13 - Therefore my people removed without knowledge, And its honourable ones are famished, And its multitude dried up of thirst.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:14 - Therefore hath Sheol enlarged herself, And hath opened her mouth without limit. And gone down hath its honour, and its multitude, And its noise, and its exulting one -- into her.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:15 - And bowed down is the low, and humbled the high, And the eyes of the haughty become low,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:16 - And Jehovah of Hosts is high in judgment, And the Holy God sanctified in righteousness,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:17 - And fed have lambs according to their leading, And waste places of the fat ones Do sojourners consume.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:18 - Wo to those drawing out iniquity with cords of vanity, And as with thick ropes of the cart -- sin.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:19 - Who are saying, 'Let Him hurry, Let Him hasten His work, that we may see, And let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel Draw near and come, and we know.'

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:20 - Wo to those saying to evil 'good,' And to good 'evil,' Putting darkness for light, and light for darkness, Putting bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:21 - Wo to the wise in their own eyes, And -- before their own faces -- intelligent!

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:22 - Wo to the mighty to drink wine, And men of strength to mingle strong drink.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:23 - Declaring righteous the wicked for a bribe, And the righteousness of the righteous They turn aside from him.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:24 - Therefore, as a tongue of fire devoureth stubble, And flaming hay falleth, Their root is as muck, And their flower as dust goeth up. Because they have rejected the law of Jehovah of Hosts, And the saying of the Holy One of Israel despised.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:25 - Therefore hath the anger of Jehovah burned among His people, And He stretcheth out His hand against it, And smiteth it, and the mountains tremble, And their carcase is as filth in the midst of the out-places. With all this His anger did not turn back, And still His hand is stretched out!

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:26 - And He lifted up an ensign to nations afar off, And hissed to it from the end of the earth, And lo, with haste, swift it cometh.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:27 - There is none weary, nor stumbling in it, It doth not slumber, nor sleep, Nor opened hath been the girdle of its loins, Nor drawn away the latchet of its sandals.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:28 - Whose arrows are sharp, and all its bows bent, Hoofs of its horses as flint have been reckoned, And its wheels as a hurricane!

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:29 - Its roaring is like a lioness, It roareth like young lions, And it howleth, and seizeth prey, And carrieth away safely, and there is none delivering.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 5:30 - And it howleth against it in that day as the howling of a sea, And it hath looked attentively to the land, And lo, darkness -- distress, And light hath been darkened by its abundance!
