Isaiah 5

RHE 1 I will sing to my beloved the canticle of my cousin concerning his vineyard. My beloved had a vineyard on a hill in a fruitful place. NIV 1 I will sing for the one I love a song about his vineyard: My loved one had a vineyard on a fertile hillside. RHE 2 And he fenced it in, and picked the stones out of it, and planted it with the choicest vines, and built a tower in the midst thereof, and set up a winepress therein: and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes. NIV 2 He dug it up and cleared it of stones and planted it with the choicest vines. He built a watchtower in it and cut out a winepress as well. Then he looked for a crop of good grapes, but it yielded only bad fruit. RHE 3 And now, O ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and ye men of Juda, judge between me and my vineyard. NIV 3 “Now you dwellers in Jerusalem and people of Judah, judge between me and my vineyard. RHE 4 What is there that I ought to do more to my vineyard, that I have not done to it? was it that I looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it hath brought forth wild grapes? NIV 4 What more could have been done for my vineyard than I have done for it? When I looked for good grapes, why did it yield only bad? RHE 5 And now I will shew you what I will do to my vineyard. I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be wasted: I will break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down. NIV 5 Now I will tell you what I am going to do to my vineyard: I will take away its hedge, and it will be destroyed; I will break down its wall, and it will be trampled. RHE 6 And I will make it desolate: it shall not be pruned, and it shall not be digged: but briers and thorns shall come up: and I will command the clouds to rain no rain upon it. NIV 6 I will make it a wasteland, neither pruned nor cultivated, and briers and thorns will grow there. I will command the clouds not to rain on it.” RHE 7 For the vineyard of the Lord of hosts is the house of Israel: and the man of Juda, his pleasant plant: and I looked that he should do judgment, and behold iniquity: and do justice, and behold a cry. NIV 7 The vineyard of the LORD Almighty is the nation of Israel, and the people of Judah are the vines he delighted in. And he looked for justice, but saw bloodshed; for righteousness, but heard cries of distress. RHE 8 Woe to you that join house to house and lay field to field, even to the end of the place: shall you alone dwell in the midst of the earth? NIV 8 Woe to you who add house to house and join field to field till no space is left and you live alone in the land. RHE 9 These things are in my ears, saith the Lord of hosts: Unless many great and fair houses shall become desolate, without an inhabitant. NIV 9 The LORD Almighty has declared in my hearing: “Surely the great houses will become desolate, the fine mansions left without occupants. RHE 10 For ten acres of vineyard shall yield one little measure, and thirty bushels of seed shall yield three bushels. NIV 10 A ten-acre vineyard will produce only a bath of wine; a homer of seed will yield only an ephah of grain.” RHE 11 Woe to you that rise up early in the morning to follow drunkenness, and to drink in the evening, to be inflamed with wine. NIV 11 Woe to those who rise early in the morning to run after their drinks, who stay up late at night till they are inflamed with wine. RHE 12 The harp, and the lyre, and, the timbrel and the pipe, and wine are in your feasts: and the work of the Lord you regard not, nor do you consider the works of his hands. NIV 12 They have harps and lyres at their banquets, pipes and timbrels and wine, but they have no regard for the deeds of the LORD, no respect for the work of his hands. RHE 13 Therefore is my people led away captive, because they had not knowledge, and their nobles have perished with famine, and their multitude were dried up with thirst. NIV 13 Therefore my people will go into exile for lack of understanding; those of high rank will die of hunger and the common people will be parched with thirst. RHE 14 Therefore hath hell enlarged her soul, and opened her mouth without any bounds, and their strong ones, and their people, and their high and glorious ones shall go down into it. NIV 14 Therefore Death expands its jaws, opening wide its mouth; into it will descend their nobles and masses with all their brawlers and revelers. RHE 15 And man shall be brought down, and man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be brought low. NIV 15 So people will be brought low and everyone humbled, the eyes of the arrogant humbled. RHE 16 And the Lord of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and the holy God shall be sanctified in justice. NIV 16 But the LORD Almighty will be exalted by his justice, and the holy God will be proved holy by his righteous acts. RHE 17 And the lambs shall feed according to their order, and strangers shall eat the deserts turned into fruitfulness. NIV 17 Then sheep will graze as in their own pasture; lambs will feed among the ruins of the rich. RHE 18 Woe to you that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as the rope of a cart. NIV 18 Woe to those who draw sin along with cords of deceit, and wickedness as with cart ropes, RHE 19 That say: Let him make haste, and let his work come quickly, that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel come, that we may know it. NIV 19 to those who say, “Let God hurry; let him hasten his work so we may see it. The plan of the Holy One of Israel— let it approach, let it come into view, so we may know it.” RHE 20 Woe to you 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. NIV 20 Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. RHE 21 Woe to you that are wise in your own eyes, and prudent in your own conceits. NIV 21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight. RHE 22 Woe to you that are mighty to drink wine, and stout men at drunkenness. NIV 22 Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine and champions at mixing drinks, RHE 23 That justify the wicked for gifts, and take away the justice of the just from him. NIV 23 who acquit the guilty for a bribe, but deny justice to the innocent. RHE 24 Therefore as the tongue of the fire devoureth the stubble, and the heat of the flame consumeth it: so shall their root be as ashes, and their bud shall go up as dust: for they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and have blasphemed the word of the Holy One of Israel. NIV 24 Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the LORD Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel. RHE 25 Therefore is the wrath of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched out his hand upon them, and struck them: and the mountains were troubles, and their carcasses became as dung in the midst of the streets. For after this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still. NIV 25 Therefore the LORD’s anger burns against his people; his hand is raised and he strikes them down. The mountains shake, and the dead bodies are like refuse in the streets. Yet for all this, his anger is not turned away, his hand is still upraised. RHE 26 And he will lift up a sign to the nations afar off, and will whistle to them from the ends of the earth: and behold they shall come with speed swiftly. NIV 26 He lifts up a banner for the distant nations, he whistles for those at the ends of the earth. Here they come, swiftly and speedily! RHE 27 There is none that shall faint, nor labour among them: they shall not slumber nor sleep, neither shall the girdle of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their shoes be broken. NIV 27 Not one of them grows tired or stumbles, not one slumbers or sleeps; not a belt is loosened at the waist, not a sandal strap is broken. RHE 28 Their arrows are sharp, and all their bows are bent. The hoofs of their horses shall be like the flint, and their wheels like the violence of a tempest. NIV 28 Their arrows are sharp, all their bows are strung; their horses’ hooves seem like flint, their chariot wheels like a whirlwind. RHE 29 Their roaring like that of a lion, they shall roar like young lions: yea they shall roar, and take hold of the prey, and they shall keep fast hold of it, and there shall be none to deliver it. NIV 29 Their roar is like that of the lion, they roar like young lions; they growl as they seize their prey and carry it off with no one to rescue. RHE 30 And they shall make a noise against them that day, like the roaring of the sea; we shall look towards the land, and behold darkness of tribulation, and the light is darkened with the mist thereof. NIV 30 In that day they will roar over it like the roaring of the sea. And if one looks at the land, there is only darkness and distress; even the sun will be darkened by clouds.
