Isaiah 5:4–8

yWhat more was there to do for my vineyard,

that I have not done in it?

xWhen I looked for it to yield grapes,

why did it yield wild grapes?

And now I will tell you

what I will do to my vineyard.

I will remove zits hedge,

and it shall be devoured;1

aI will break down its wall,

and it shall be trampled down.

I will make it a waste;

it shall not be pruned or hoed,

and bbriers and thorns shall grow up;

cI will also command the clouds

that they rain no rain upon it.

dFor the vineyard of the Lord of hosts

is the house of Israel,

and the men of Judah

are his pleasant planting;

and he looked for justice,

but behold, bloodshed;2

for righteousness,

but behold, an outcry!3

Woe to the Wicked

Woe to those who ejoin house to house,

who add field to field,

until there is no more room,

and you are made to dwell alone

in the midst of the land.
