Isaiah 5:1-2New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Parable of the Vineyard

Let me sing now for my well-beloved
A song of my beloved concerning His vineyard.
My well-beloved had a vineyard on [a]a fertile hill.
He dug it all around, removed its stones,
And planted it with [b]the choicest vine.
And He built a tower in the middle of it
And also hewed out a [c]wine vat in it;
Then He expected it to produce good grapes,
But it produced only [d]worthless ones.

Isaiah 5:1-2New International Version (NIV)

The Song of the Vineyard

I will sing for the one I love
    a song about his vineyard:
My loved one had a vineyard
    on a fertile hillside.
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.

The Vineyard of the Lord Destroyed

Let me sing for my beloved

My beloved had a vineyard
    on a very fertile hill.
He dug it and cleared it of stones,

he built a watchtower in the midst of it,

and he looked for it to yield grapes,
    but it yielded wild grapes.

Isaiah 5:1-2Contemporary English Version (CEV)

A Song about a Vineyard

The Lord said:

I will sing a song
    about my friend’s vineyard
that was on the side
    of a fertile hill.
My friend dug the ground,
removed the stones,
    and planted the best vines.
He built a watchtower
and dug a pit in rocky ground
    for pressing the grapes.
He hoped they would be sweet,
but bitter grapes
    were all it produced.
