Isaiah 5:6-8 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

I will turn my vineyard into useless land.
    No one will care for the plants or work in the field.
    Weeds and thorns will grow there.
I will command the clouds
    not to rain on it.”

The vineyard that belongs to the Lord All-Powerful is the house of Israel. The grapevine, the plant he loves, is the man of Judah.[a]

The Lord hoped for justice,
    but there was only killing.
He hoped for fairness,
    but there were only cries from people being treated badly.

Look at you people! You join houses to houses and fields to fields until there is no room for anyone else. But when the punishment comes, you will be forced to live alone. You will be the only people in the whole land.
