The Book of Isaiah Chapter 5 – New King James Version (NKJV) – Audio Bible

Chapter 5. Now let me sing to my well-beloved a Song of my beloved regarding his Vineyard My well-beloved has a Vineyard on a very Fruitful Hill He dug it up and cleared out its stones And planted it with the choicest Vine He built a tower in its midst and also Made a wine press in it So he expected it to bring forth good Grapes But it brought forth wild grapes And now o inhabitants of Jerusalem and Men of Judah judge please between me and My Vineyard What more could have been done to my Vineyard that I have not done in it Why then when I expected it to bring Forth good grapes Did it bring forth wild grapes And now Please let me tell you what I will do to My Vineyard I will take away its hedge and it shall Be burned And break down its wall and it shall be Trampled down I will lay it waste It shall not be pruned or dug but there Shall come up Briars and thorns I will also command the clouds that they Rain no rain on it For the vineyard of the Lord of hosts is

The house of Israel and the men of Judah Are his Pleasant plant He looked for justice but behold Oppression For righteousness but Behold a cry for Help Woe to those who join house to house They add field to field Till There is no Place where they may dwell alone in the Midst of the land In my hearing the Lord of hosts said Truly many houses shall be desolate Great and beautiful ones without Inhabitant For 10 acres of Vineyard shall yield one Bath and a homer of seed shall yield one Ether Woe to those who rise early in the Morning that they may follow Intoxicating drink Who continue until night till wine Inflames them The harp and the strings the tambourine And flute and wine are in their Feasts But they do not regard the work of the Lord nor considered the operation of his Hands Therefore my people have gone into Captivity because they have no knowledge Their Honorable Men are famished and Their multitude dried up with thirst Therefore Sheil has enlarged itself and Opened its mouth beyond measure Their glory and their multitude and

Their Pomp and he who is jubilant shall Descend into it People shall be brought down each man Shall be humbled and the eyes of the Lofty shall be humbled But the Lord of hosts shall be exalted In judgment And God who is Holy shall be hallowed in Righteousness Then the Lambs shall feed in their Pasture and in the waste places of the Fat ones strangers shall eat Woe to those who draw iniquity with Cords of vanity And sin as if with a cart rope But say let him make speed and hasten His work that we may see it And let the Council of the Holy One of Israel draw near and come that we may Know it 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 Woe to those who are wise in their own Eyes and prudent in their own sight Woe to men Mighty at drinking wine Woe to men Valiant for mixing Intoxicating drink Who justify the wicked for a bribe and Take away Justice from the righteous man Therefore as the fire devours the

Stubble and the flame consumes the chaff So their root will be as rottenness And their Blossom will Ascend like dust Because they have rejected the law of The Lord of hosts and despised the word Of the Holy One of Israel Therefore the anger of the Lord is Aroused against his people He has stretched out his hand against Them and stricken them And the hills trembled Their carcasses were as refuse in the Midst of the streets For all this his anger is not turned Away But his hand is stretched out still He will lift up a banner to the nations From afar and will whistle to them from The end of the Earth Surely they shall come with speed Swiftly No one will be weary or stumble among Them no one will Slumber or sleep Nor will the belt on their loins be Loosed nor the strap of their sandals be Broken Whose arrows are sharp and all their Bows bent Their horse's Hooves will seem like Flint and their wheels like a whirlwind Their roaring will be like a lion they Will roar like young lions Yes they will Roar and lay hold of the Prey they will carry it away safely and

No one will deliver In that day they will Roar against them Like the Roaring of the sea And if one looks to the land Behold darkness and sorrow And the light is darkened by the clouds
