Parable of the Vineyard
I will sing indeed to the one being loved of me a song of my beloved concerning his vineyard. A vineyard became to the one being loved on a horn in [2
a barrier 1
I put] around it, and I built a palisade, and planted a grapevine, a choice vine; and I built a tower in the
midst of it; and [2
a wine press 1
I dug] in it; and I waited for it
to produce the
grape, and it produced thorn-bushes.
And now, O ones dwelling in Jerusalem, and O man of Judah, judge then [2
between] my vineyard!
What shall I do still to my vineyard that I did not do
to it? For I waited for it
to produce a grape, but it produced thorn-bushes.
Now then I will announce to you what I will do to
my vineyard. I will remove its barrier, and it will be for ravaging. And I will demolish its wall, and it will be for trampling.
And I will forsake my vineyard; for in no way should it be pruned, neither shall it be dug. And [2
shall ascend 3
an uncultivated land 1the

of Hosts [2the
of Israel 1

man of Judah is the
newly planted one being loved. I waited for it to produce equity, but it produced lawlessness; and not righteousness, but a cry.

Accordingly he shall lift up an agreed upon sign among the nations far off; and he shall whistle at them from the
uttermost part of the earth; and behold, quickly nimbly they come.
They shall not hunger nor tire, nor shall they slumber nor shall they go to sleep, nor shall they untie their belts from their loins, nor shall they tear away
the straps of their sandals;
whose arrows are sharp, and their bows being stretched tight; the feet of their horses [2
