Isaiah Chapter 5 KJV

1Under the parable of a vineyard God justifieth the severity of his dealings with his people: 8his judgments upon their covetousness; 11riot, and disregard of him; 18profaneness; 20perverseness, selfconceit, excess, and injustice. 26The executioners of God's judgments.
1 Now 1will I sing to my 2wellbeloved a song of my beloved 3touching his vineyard. My wellbeloved hath a vineyard ain a very fruitful hill:
2 1And he afenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also bmade a winepress therein: and he 2looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth 3wild grapes.
3 And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem, and men of Judah, 1judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard.
4 1What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it? wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes?
5 And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: 1I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall thereof, and it shall be atrodden down:
6 1And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it.
7 For 1the vineyard of the Lord of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah ahis pleasant plant: and 2he looked for judgment, but behold boppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry.
8 ¶ Woe unto them 1that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place, that athey may be placed alone in the midst of the earth!
9 aIn mine ears said the Lord of hosts, bOf a truth many houses 1shall be desolate, even great and fair, without inhabitant.
10 Yea, ten acres of vineyard shall yield one 1bath, and the seed of an homer shall yield an ephah.
11 1Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine ainflame them!
12 1And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they 2regard not the work of the Lord, neither consider 3the operation of his hands.
13 ¶ Therefore my people 1are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and atheir honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.
14 1Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that arejoiceth, shall descend into it.
15 And 1the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled:
16 But the Lord of hosts 1shall be exalted in judgment, and aGod that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness.
17 Then 1shall the lambs feed after their manner, and the waste places of the 2fat ones shall 3strangers eat.
18 1Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope:
19 That say, 1Let him make speed, and hasten his work, that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it!
20 ¶ Woe unto them athat call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
21 Woe unto them that are 1wise in their own eyes, and prudent ain their own sight!
22 1Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
23 1Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
24 Therefore as athe fire devoureth the stubble, and 1the flame consumeth the chaff, so 2their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast 3away the law of the Lord of hosts, and 4despised the word of 5the Holy One of Israel.
25 1Therefore is the anger of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and 2the hills did tremble, and their carcases were atorn in the midst of the streets. For 3all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
26 ¶ And 1he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss unto them from the end of the earth: and, behold, they shall come with speed swiftly:
27 1None shall be weary nor stumble among them; none shall slumber nor sleep; neither shall the 2girdle of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their shoes be broken:
28 1Whose arrows are sharp, and all their bows bent, their horses' hoofs shall be counted like flint, and their wheels like a whirlwind:
29 1Their roaring shall be like a lion, they shall roar like young lions: yea, they shall roar, and lay hold of the prey, and shall carry it away safe, and none shall deliver it.
30 And 1in that day they shall roar against them 2like the roaring of the sea: and if one look unto the land, 3behold darkness and asorrow, and bthe light is darkened in the heavens thereof.
