Isaiah 5

Now will I sing to my wellbeloved a song of my beloved touching his vineyard. My wellbeloved hath a vineyard in a very fruitful hill:
cantabo dilecto meo canticum patruelis mei vineae suae vinea facta est dilecto meo in cornu filio olei
And he fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also made a winepress therein: and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes.
et sepivit eam et lapides elegit ex illa et plantavit eam electam et aedificavit turrem in medio eius et torcular extruxit in ea et expectavit ut faceret uvas et fecit labruscas
And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem, and men of Judah, judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard.
nunc ergo habitator Hierusalem et vir Iuda iudicate inter me et inter vineam meam
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?
quid est quod debui ultra facere vineae meae et non feci ei an quod expectavi ut faceret uvas et fecit labruscas
And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down:
et nunc ostendam vobis quid ego faciam vineae meae auferam sepem eius et erit in direptionem diruam maceriam eius et erit in conculcationem
And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it.
et ponam eam desertam non putabitur et non fodietur et ascendent vepres et spinae et nubibus mandabo ne pluant super eam imbrem
For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment, but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry.
vinea enim Domini exercituum domus Israhel et vir Iuda germen delectabile eius et expectavi ut faceret iudicium et ecce iniquitas et iustitiam et ecce clamor
Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth!
vae qui coniungitis domum ad domum et agrum agro copulatis usque ad terminum loci numquid habitabitis soli vos in medio terrae
In mine ears said the LORD of hosts, Of a truth many houses shall be desolate, even great and fair, without inhabitant.
in auribus meis sunt haec Domini exercituum nisi domus multae desertae fuerint grandes et pulchrae absque habitatore
Yea, ten acres of vineyard shall yield one bath, and the seed of an homer shall yield an ephah.
decem enim iuga vinearum facient lagunculam unam et triginta modii sementis facient modios tres
Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them!
vae qui consurgitis mane ad ebrietatem sectandam et potandum usque ad vesperam ut vino aestuetis
And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the LORD, neither consider the operation of his hands.
cithara et lyra et tympanum et tibia et vinum in conviviis vestris et opus Domini non respicitis nec opera manuum eius consideratis
Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.
propterea captivus ductus est populus meus quia non habuit scientiam et nobiles eius interierunt fame et multitudo eius siti exaruit
Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.
propterea dilatavit infernus animam suam et aperuit os suum absque ullo termino et descendent fortes eius et populus eius et sublimes gloriosique eius ad eum
And the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled:
et incurvabitur homo et humiliabitur vir et oculi sublimium deprimentur
But the LORD of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and God that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness.
et exaltabitur Dominus exercituum in iudicio et Deus sanctus sanctificabitur in iustitia
Then shall the lambs feed after their manner, and the waste places of the fat ones shall strangers eat.
et pascentur agni iuxta ordinem suum et deserta in ubertatem versa advenae comedent
Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope:
vae qui trahitis iniquitatem in funiculis vanitatis et quasi vinculum plaustri peccatum
That say, Let him make speed, and 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!
qui dicitis festinet et cito veniat opus eius ut videamus et adpropiet et veniat consilium Sancti Israhel et sciemus illud
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
vae qui dicitis malum bonum et bonum malum ponentes tenebras lucem et lucem tenebras ponentes amarum in dulce et dulce in amarum
Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
vae qui sapientes estis in oculis vestris et coram vobismet ipsis prudentes
Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
vae qui potentes estis ad bibendum vinum et viri fortes ad miscendam ebrietatem
Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
qui iustificatis impium pro muneribus et iustitiam iusti aufertis ab eo
Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
propter hoc sicut devorat stipulam lingua ignis et calor flammae exurit sic radix eorum quasi favilla erit et germen eorum ut pulvis ascendet abiecerunt enim legem Domini exercituum et eloquium Sancti Israhel blasphemaverunt
Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
ideo iratus est furor Domini in populo suo et extendit manum suam super eum et percussit eum et conturbati sunt montes et facta sunt morticina eorum quasi stercus in medio platearum in omnibus his non est aversus furor eius sed adhuc manus eius extenta
And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss unto them from the end of the earth: and, behold, they shall come with speed swiftly:
et levabit signum nationibus procul et sibilabit ad eum de finibus terrae et ecce festinus velociter veniet
None shall be weary nor stumble among them; none shall slumber nor sleep; neither shall the girdle of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their shoes be broken:
non est deficiens neque laborans in eo non dormitabit neque dormiet neque solvetur cingulum renum eius nec rumpetur corrigia calciamenti eius
Whose arrows are sharp, and all their bows bent, their horses' hoofs shall be counted like flint, and their wheels like a whirlwind:
sagittae eius acutae et omnes arcus eius extenti ungulae equorum eius ut silex et rotae eius quasi impetus tempestatis
Their roaring shall be like a lion, they shall roar like young lions: yea, they shall roar, and lay hold of the prey, and shall carry it away safe, and none shall deliver it.
rugitus eius ut leonis rugiet ut catuli leonum et frendet et tenebit praedam et amplexabitur et non erit qui eruat
And in that day they shall roar against them like the roaring of the sea: and if one look unto the land, behold darkness and sorrow, and the light is darkened in the heavens thereof.
et sonabit super eum in die illa sicut sonitus maris aspiciemus in terram et ecce tenebrae tribulationis et lux obtenebrata est in caligine eius
