And they please themselves in the brood of

aliens.
7 Their land also is full of silver and gold,

Neither is there any end of their treasures;
Their land also is full of horses,

Neither is there any end of their chariots. 8 Their land also is full of idols; Every one worshippeth the work of his own

hands, That which his own fingers have made. 9 And man boweth down,

And man lowereth himself;

And Thou canst not bear with them. 10 Enter into the rock,

And hide thee in the dust,
From before the terror of the LORD,

And from the glory of His majesty. 11 The lofty looks of man shall be brought low, And the haughtiness of men shall be bowed

down, And the LORD alone shall be exalted in that

day.

12 For the LORD of hosts hath a day

Upon all that is proud and lofty,
And upon all that is lifted up, and it shall

be brought low;
13 And upon all the cedars of Lebanon

That are high and lifted up,

And upon all the oaks of Bashan; 14 And upon all the high mountains,

And upon all the hills that are lifted up; 15 And upon every lofty tower,

And upon every fortified wall; 16 And upon all the ships of Tarshish,

And upon all delightful imagery. 17 And the loftiness of man shall be bowed

down, And the haughtiness of men shall be brought

low; And the LORD alone shall be exalted in that

day.

18 And the idols shall utterly pass away.
19 And men shall go into the caves of the rocks,

And into the holes of the earth,
From before the terror of the LORD,
And from the glory of His majesty,

When He ariseth to shake mightily the earth. 20 In that day a man shall cast away

His idols of silver, and his idols of gold,
Which they made for themselves to worship,

To the moles and to the bats;
21 To go into the clefts of the rocks,

And into the crevices of the crags,
From before the terror of the LORD,
And from the glory of His majesty,
When He ariseth to shake mightily the earth.

22 Cease ye from man, in whose nostrils is a

breath;
For how little is he to be accounted!

Parable of the Vineyard

5

Let me sing of my well-beloved,
A song of my beloved touching his vine-

yard.
My well-beloved had a vineyard

In a very fruitful hill;
2 And he digged it, and cleared it of stones,

And planted it with the choicest vine,
And built a tower in the midst of it,
And also hewed out a vat therein;
And he looked that it should bring forth

grapes,
And it brought forth wild grapes.

3 And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem and

men of Judah, Judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vine

yard. 4 What 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 come, I will tell you

What I will do to my vineyard:
I will take away the hedge thereof,
And it shall be eaten up;
I will break down the fence thereof,

And it shall be trodden down; 6 And I will lay it waste:

It shall not be pruned nor hoed,
But there shall come up briers and thorns;
I will also command the clouds
That they rain no rain upon it.

7 For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the

house of Israel, And the men of Judah the plant of His de

light;

And He looked for justice, but behold

violence;
For righteousness, but behold a cry.

8 Woe unto them that join house to house,

That lay field to field,
Till there be no room, and ye be made to

dwell
Alone in the midst of the land!
9 In mine ears said the Lord of hosts:

Of a truth many houses shall be desolate,

Even great and fair, without inhabitant. 10 For ten acres of vineyard shall yield one

bath, And the seed of a homer shall yield an

ephah.

11 Woe unto them that rise up early in the

morning,
That they may follow strong drink;
That tarry late into the night,

Till wine inflame them! 12 And the harp and the psaltery, the tabret

and the pipe,
And wine, are in their feasts;
But they regard not the work of the LORD,
Neither have they considered the operation

of His hands. 13 Therefore My people are gone into captivity,

For want of knowledge;
And their honourable men are famished,

And their multitude are parched with thirst. 14 Therefore the nether-world hath enlarged

her desire, And opened her mouth without measure;

And down goeth their glory, and their

tumult, and their uproar, And he that rejoiceth among them. 15 And man is bowed down,

And man is humbled,

And the eyes of the lofty are humbled; 16 But the LORD of hosts is exalted through

justice, And God the Holy One is sanctified through

righteousness. 17 Then shall the lambs feed as in their pas

ture, And the waste places of the fat ones shall

wanderers eat.

18 Woe unto them that draw iniquity with

cords of vanity, And sin as it were with a cart rope, 19 That say: 'Let Him make speed, let Him

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 that call evil good,

And good evil;
That change darkness into light,
And light into darkness;
That change bitter into sweet,
And sweet into bitter!

21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own

eyes,
And prudent in their own sight!
