For the vineyard of the LORD of armies is the house of Israel, And the people of Judah are His delightful plant. So He waited for justice, but behold, there was
bloodshed; For righteousness, but behold, a cry for help.
Woe to those who attach house to house and
join field to field, Until there is no more room, And you alone are a landowner in the midst of the land!
In my ears the LORD of armies has sworn,
'Many houses shall certainly become desolate, Even
great and fine ones, without occupants.
