Holy Bible book of
1 Now will I sing to my wellbeloved a song of my beloved touching his
vineyard. My wellbeloved hath a vineyard in a very fruitful hill:
2 And he fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with
the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also made a
winepress therein: and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it
brought forth wild grapes.
3 And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem, and men of Judah, judge, I pray you,
betwixt me and my vineyard.
4 What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it?
wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth
5 And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take
away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall
thereof, and it shall be trodden down:
6 And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall
come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no
rain upon it.
7 For the 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.
8 Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there
be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth!
9 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 bath, and the seed of an homer
shall yield an ephah.
11 Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow
strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them!
12 And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their
feasts: but they regard not the work of the LORD, neither consider the
operation of his hands.
13 Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no
knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up
14 Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure:
and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth,
shall descend into it.
15 And the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be
humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled:
16 But the 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 their manner, and the waste places of the
fat ones shall strangers eat.
18 Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were
with a cart rope:
19 That 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
20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for
light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for
21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own
22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle
23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the
righteous from him!
24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the
chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as
dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised
the word of the Holy One of Israel.
25 Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people, and he hath
stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills
did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all
this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
26 And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss unto
them from the end of the earth: and, behold, they shall come with speed
27 None shall be weary nor stumble among them; none shall slumber nor sleep;
neither shall the girdle of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their
shoes be broken:
28 Whose arrows are sharp, and all their bows bent, their horses’ hoofs shall
be counted like flint, and their wheels like a whirlwind:
29 Their roaring shall be like a lion, they shall roar like young lions: yea,
they shall roar, and lay hold of the prey, and shall carry it away safe, and
none shall deliver it.
30 And in that day they shall roar against them like the roaring of the sea:
and if one look unto the land, behold darkness and sorrow, and the light is
darkened in the heavens thereof.
