and shoots toward the River. Why have You broken down its walls
so that all who pass by pick its fruit? The boar from the forest tears it
and creatures of the field feed on it. Return, God of Hosts.
Look down from heaven and see;
take care of this vine, the root Your right hand has planted,
the shoot that You made strong for Yourself. It was cut down and burned up;
they perish at the rebuke of Your countenance. Let Your hand be with the man at Your right hand,

Isaiah 5:1-7

I will sing about the one I love,
a song about my loved one’s vineyard:

on a very fertile hill. He broke up the soil, cleared it of stones,

He built a tower in the middle of it
and even dug out a winepress there.
He expected it to yield good grapes,
but it yielded worthless grapes. So now, residents of Jerusalem
and men of Judah,
please judge between Me
and My vineyard.read more.
What more could I have done for My vineyard
than I did?
Why, when I expected a yield of good grapes,
did it yield worthless grapes? Now I will tell you
what I am about to do to My vineyard:
I will remove its hedge,
and it will be consumed;
I will tear down its wall,
and it will be trampled. I will make it a wasteland.
It will not be pruned or weeded;
thorns and briers will grow up.
I will also give orders to the clouds
that rain should not fall on it. For the vineyard of the Lord of Hosts
is the house of Israel,
and the men of Judah,
the plant He delighted in.
He looked for justice
but saw injustice,
for righteousness,
but heard cries of wretchedness.

Isaiah 24:5-13

and only a few survive. The new wine mourns;
the vine withers.
All the carousers now groan.read more.
The joyful tambourines have ceased.
The noise of the jubilant has stopped.
The joyful lyre has ceased. They no longer sing and drink wine;
beer is bitter to those who drink it. The city of chaos is shattered;
every house is closed to entry. In the streets they cry for wine.
All joy grows dark;
earth’s rejoicing goes into exile. Only desolation remains in the city;
its gate has collapsed in ruins. For this is how it will be on earth
among the nations:
like a harvested olive tree,
like a gleaning after a grape harvest.

Isaiah 65:8

Joel 3:12-13

and come to the Valley of Jehoshaphat,

to judge all the surrounding nations. Swing the sickle
because the harvest is ripe.

because the winepress is full;

because the wickedness of the nations is great.

An evil man produces evil out of the evil storeroom, for his mouth speaks from the overflow of the heart.
