Isaiah 5:1-2; Joel 1:7

The Vineyard of the Lord Destroyed

Let me sing for my beloved

my love song concerning his vineyard:

My beloved had va vineyard

on a very fertile hill.

He dug it and cleared it of stones,

and planted it with wchoice vines;

he built a watchtower in the midst of it,

and hewed out a wine vat in it;

and xhe looked for it to yield grapes,

but it yielded wild grapes.


It has laid waste my vine

and splintered my mfig tree;

it has stripped off their bark and thrown it down;

their branches are made white.
