Isaiah 5:1–6

Now will I sing to amy wellbeloved ba song of my beloved touching chis vineyard.

aMy wellbeloved hath a vineyard in a very fruitful hill:

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.
