[ I will again be working through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. I will be adding links, resources, images, and the like, upgrading the former work-through which began with the 2013-10-12 posting which can be found, along with the full Genesis to Revelation postings, in the Archive Page. Postings will be at midnight Eastern Time, as I am able. However, no chapters will be skipped, even though a posting may be late. And all postings will be housed in the Archive Page. ]

     Explanation: In Isaiah 5, the LORD says he will send destruction upon his vineyard (his people) because it produced wild grapes and was filled with drunkards who were inflamed with wine (1-12). Captivity was upon them; hell was waiting; and their self-deceit was about to come to an end (13-23). The LORD's hand was stretched out against them, and he was sending irresistible enemies against them (24-30).

PLEASE NOTE: Use the resources on this and other sites thoughtfully, particularly the commentaries and encyclopedias. I have attempted to list conservative, scholarly resources. However, some providers use liberal or liberal-influenced commentaries such as the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (in Bible Hub). Such commentaries are undoubtedly included by the provider for the wealth of useful information and comments which they provide. By consulting several commentaries, it should be fairly easy to sort out the wheat from the chaff. If, however, you would like personal assistance, write to me at AD LIB ARTS EMAIL.

The LORD Proclaims Judgment Upon His Vineyard (5:1-30)

     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 *** [in a mountain-peak -- an anointed son]:
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 bought 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,
bought it forth wild grapes?

     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 [if not] many houses shall be desolate,
even great and fair,
without [nothing of] 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 captiviy,
because they have no knowledge:
and their honourable men are famished,
and their multitude dried up with thirst.
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 bought 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 it!
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 bitter!
21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes,
and prudent in their own sight!
22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine,
and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
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 [are as filth] 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 swiftly:
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.
