Isaiah 5:5-6

5-6"Well now, let me tell you

what I'll do to my vineyard:

I'll tear down its fence

and let it go to ruin.

I'll knock down the gate

and let it be trampled.

I'll turn it into a patch of weeds, untended, uncared for—

thistles and thorns will take over.

I'll give orders to the clouds:

'Don't rain on that vineyard, ever!'"

7Do you get it? The vineyard of God-of-the-Angel-Armies

is the country of Israel.

All the men and women of Judah

are the garden he was so proud of.

He looked for a crop of justice

and saw them murdering each other.

He looked for a harvest of righteousness

and heard only the moans of victims.
