5 Revised Standard Version Passage Biblia Hebraica

5 1Let me sing for my beloved
a love song concerning his vineyard:
My beloved had a vineyard on a very fertile hill.
The song of the vineyard. Is.5.1-7אָשִׁירָה נָּא לִידִידִי שִׁירַת דֹּודִי לְכַרְמֹו
כֶּרֶם הָיָה לִידִידִי בְּקֶרֶן בֶּן־שָׁמֶן׃
2He digged it and cleared it of stones,
and planted it with choice vines;
he built a watchtower in the midst of it,
and hewed out a wine vat in it;
and he looked for it to yield grapes,
but it yielded wild grapes.
 וַיְעַזְּקֵהוּ וַיְסַקְּלֵהוּ וַיִּטָּעֵהוּ שֹׂרֵק
וַיִּבֶן מִגְדָּל בְּתֹוכֹו וְגַם־יֶקֶב חָצֵב בֹּו
וַיְקַו לַעֲשֹׂות עֲנָבִים וַיַּעַשׂ בְּאֻשִׁים׃
3And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem and men of Judah,
judge, I pray you, between me and my vineyard.
 וְעַתָּה יֹושֵׁב יְרוּשָׁלִַם וְאִישׁ יְהוּדָה
שִׁפְטוּ־נָא בֵּינִי וּבֵין כַּרְמִי׃
4What more was there to do for my vineyard,
that I have not done in it?
When I looked for it to yield grapes,
why did it yield wild grapes?
 מַה־לַּעֲשֹׂות עֹוד לְכַרְמִי וְלֹא עָשִׂיתִי בֹּו
מַדּוּעַ קִוֵּיתִי לַעֲשֹׂות עֲנָבִים וַיַּעַשׂ בְּאֻשִׁים׃
5And now I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard.
I will remove its hedge, and it shall be devoured;
I will break down its wall, and it shall be trampled down.
 וְעַתָּה אֹודִיעָה־נָּא אֶתְכֶם אֵת אֲשֶׁר־אֲנִי עֹשֶׂה לְכַרְמִי
הָסֵר מְשׂוּכָּתֹו וְהָיָה לְבָעֵר פָּרֹץ גְּדֵרֹו וְהָיָה לְמִרְמָס׃
6I will make it a waste;
it shall not be pruned or hoed,
and briers and thorns shall grow up;
I will also command the clouds
that they rain no rain upon it.
 וַאֲשִׁיתֵהוּ בָתָה לֹא יִזָּמֵר וְלֹא יֵעָדֵר וְעָלָה שָׁמִיר וָשָׁיִת
וְעַל הֶעָבִים אֲצַוֶּה מֵהַמְטִיר עָלָיו מָטָר׃
7For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel,
and the men of Judah are his pleasant planting;
and he looked for justice, but behold, bloodshed;
for righteousness, but behold, a cry!
 כִּי כֶרֶם יְהוָה צְבָאֹות בֵּית יִשְׂרָאֵל
וְאִישׁ יְהוּדָה נְטַע שַׁעֲשׁוּעָיו
וַיְקַו לְמִשְׁפָּט וְהִנֵּה מִשְׂפָּח לִצְדָקָה וְהִנֵּה צְעָקָה׃ ס
