Isaiah 5:4-6

Context

5:4 What more can I do for my vineyard

beyond what I have already done?

When I waited for it to produce edible grapes,

why did it produce sour ones instead?

5:5 Now I will inform you

what I am about to do to my vineyard:

I will remove its hedge and turn it into pasture, 1 

I will break its wall and allow animals to graze there. 2 

5:6 I will make it a wasteland;

no one will prune its vines or hoe its ground, 3 

and thorns and briers will grow there.

I will order the clouds

not to drop any rain on it.

1 tn Heb “and it will become [a place for] grazing.” בָּעַר (baar, “grazing”) is a homonym of the more often used verb “to burn.”

2 tn Heb “and it will become a trampled place” (NASB “trampled ground”).

3 tn Heb “it will not be pruned or hoed” (so NASB); ASV and NRSV both similar.
