Daily Meeting Place
Parable of the Vineyard
Today's Passage: Isaiah 5:1-7
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you for insight.
A simple strategy: Building Blocks
1. Now I will sing for the one I love a song about his vineyard:
My beloved had a vineyard on a rich and fertile hill.
2. He plowed the land, cleared its stones, and planted it with the best vines.
In the middle he built a watchtower and carved a winepress in the nearby rocks.
Then he waited for a harvest of sweet grapes, but the grapes that grew were bitter.
3. Now, you people of Jerusalem and Judah, you judge between me and my vineyard.
4. What more could I have done for my vineyard that I have not already done?
When I expected sweet grapes, why did my vineyard give me bitter grapes?
5. Now let me tell you what I will do to my vineyard:
I will tear down its hedges and let it be destroyed.
I will break down its walls and let the animals trample it.
6. I will make it a wild place where the vines are not pruned and the ground is not hoed,
a place overgrown with briers and thorns.
I will command the clouds to drop no rain on it.
7. The nation of Israel is the vineyard of the LORD of Heaven's Armies.
The people of Judah are his pleasant garden.
He expected a crop of justice, but instead he found oppression.
He expected to find righteousness, but instead he heard cries of violence.
Isaiah 5:1-7 NLT
