In my last post, we examined The Parable (or Song) of the Vineyard in Yesha’yahu 5:1-7. In this post, we begin to explore the SixWoes and Judgments of Isra’el in Yesha’yahu 5:8ff. Today, we will cover the first two of six woes Yesha’yahu declares toIsra’el.
The previous passage described Isra’el as a vineyard that produced worthless grapes. The six woes that follow illustrate why Isra’el was so worthless with judgments to follow.
8 Woe to those who add house to house and join field to field, until there’s no room for anyone else, and you live in splendor alone on your land. 9 Adonai-Tzva’ot said in my ears, “Many houses will be brought to ruin, large, magnificent ones left empty; 10 for a ten-acre vineyard will produce only five gallons of wine, and seed from five bushels of grain will yield but half a bushel.”
