The Song Of The Vineyard

My well-beloved has a vineyard on a very fruitful hill: 2 And he dug it, and gathered out its stones, and planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also made a winepress in it: and he expected that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes.
