And dhe ||fenced it, and egathered out the stones thereof,

And dplanted it with fthe choicest vine,

And dbuilt a tower in the midst of it,

And dalso made ga winepress therein:

And hhe looked that it should bring forth grapes,

And it brought forth wild grapes.

And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem, and men of Judah,

Judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard.

What could have been done more to my vineyard,

That I have not done in it?

Wherefore, hwhen I looked that it should bring forth grapes,

Brought it forth wild grapes?

And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard:

I will take away ithe hedge thereof, and jit shall be eaten up;

And kbreak down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down:

And I will lay it waste:

It shall not be pruned, nor digged;

But there shall come up lbriers and thorns:

I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it.

For mthe vineyard of the Lord of hosts is the house of Israel,

And the men of Judah his pleasant plant:

And he looked for judgment, but behold oppression;

For righteousness, but behold a cry.

Woe unto them that join ohouse to house,

That lay ofield to field, till there be no place,

That they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth!

||In mine ears said the Lord of hosts,

Of a truth many houses shall be desolate,

Even great and fair, without inhabitant.

10  Yea, ten acres of vineyard shall yield one pbath,

And qthe seed of pan homer shall yield pan ephah.

11  rWoe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink;

sThat continue until night, till wine ||tinflame them!

12  And uvthe harp, and uwthe viol, the uvxytabret, and uypipe,

And wine, are in their feasts:

But zthey regard not athe work of the Lord,

zNeither aconsider bthe operation of his hands.

13  Therefore my people are gone into captivity, cbecause they have no knowledge:

And their honourable men are famished,

And their multitude dried up with thirst.

14  Therefore dhell hath enlarged herself,

And eopened fher mouth without measure:

And their glory, and fftheir multitude, and their gpomp,

And ffhe that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.

15  And hthe mean man shall be brought down,

And the mighty man shall be humbled,

And the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled:

16  But ithe Lord of hosts shall be exalted in judgment,

And ||God that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness.

17  Then shall the lambs feed after jtheir manner,

And the waste places of kthe fat ones shall lstrangers eat.

18  Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity,

And msin as it were with a cart rope:

19  nThat say, Let him make speed, and hasten his work,

That we may see it:

And let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come,

That we may know it!

20  Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil;

oThat put darkness for light, and light for darkness;

That put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

21  Woe unto them that are pwise in their own eyes,

And prudent in their own sight!
