Isaiah 5:6-8 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

And I will make it a wasteland;
    it shall not be pruned and hoed,
and it shall be overgrown with briers[a] and thornbushes.[b]
    And concerning the clouds, I will command them not to send[c] rain down upon it.
For the vineyard of Yahweh of hosts is the house of Israel,
    and the man[d] of Judah is the plantation of his delight.
And he waited for justice,[e]
    but look! Bloodshed![f]
For righteousness,[g]
    but look! A cry of distress![h]

Woes on the Wicked

Ah! Those who join[i] house with house,
    they join field together with field
until there is no place[j]
    and you are caused to dwell alone in the midst of the land.
