Parable of the Vineyard

1 Let me sing now for my well-beloved A song of my beloved concerning His vineyard. My well-beloved had a 1vineyard on aa fertile hill. 2 He dug it all around, removed its stones, And planted it with bthe 2choicest vine. And He built a tower in the middle of it And also hewed out a cwine vat in it; Then He 3expected it to produce good grapes, But it produced only dworthless ones. 3 "And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem and men of Judah, 4Judge between Me and My vineyard. 4 "5What more was there to do for My vineyard ethat I have not done in it? Why, when I expected it to produce good grapes did it produce fworthless ones? 5 "So now let Me tell you what I am going to do to My vineyard: I will 6remove its hedge and it will be consumed; I will 7break down its wall and it will become 8trampled ground. 6 "I will 9lay it waste; It will not be pruned or hoed, But briars and thorns will come up. I will also charge the clouds to 10rain no rain on it." 7 For the 11vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel And the men of Judah His delightful plant. Thus He looked for justice, but behold, 12bloodshed; For righteousness, but behold, a cry of distress.
