Isaiah 16:10

10 Joy and gladness are taken away from the orchards; no one sings or shouts in the vineyards; no one treads out wine at the presses, for I have put an end to the shouting.

Read Isaiah 16:10 Using Other Translations

And gladness is taken away, and joy out of the plentiful field; and in the vineyards there shall be no singing, neither shall there be shouting: the treaders shall tread out no wine in their presses; I have made their vintage shouting to cease.
And joy and gladness are taken away from the fruitful field, and in the vineyards no songs are sung, no cheers are raised; no treader treads out wine in the presses; I have put an end to the shouting.
Gone now is the gladness, gone the joy of harvest. There will be no singing in the vineyards, no more happy shouts, no treading of grapes in the winepresses. I have ended all their harvest joys.

What does Isaiah 16:10 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Isaiah 16:10

And gladness is taken away, and joy out of the plentiful
field
Or "is gathered" F8, though their harvest was not; all cause of joy and gladness was removed; a plentiful field being foraged, trampled upon, and destroyed by the enemy, and left desolate without any to manure it: and in the vineyards there shall be no singing;
as there used to be by the men that gathered the grapes, and trod the wine presses; but now there would be no men in the vineyards, there being no grapes to gather or tread, as follows: the treaders shall tread out no wine in [their] presses;
the way in those times and countries being for men to tread the grapes, and the wine out of them, with their feet, in vats or vessels, and not in presses with screws and weights, as now: I have made their [vintage shouting] to cease;
by suffering the enemy to come in among them, which had destroyed their vintage, and so prevented their shouting, and spoiled their song.
