Isaiah 5:1-7 NIV

I will sing for the one I love
a song about his vineyard:

My loved one had a vineyard
on a fertile hillside.

He dug it up and cleared it of stones
and planted it with the choicest vines.

He built a watchtower in it
and cut out a winepress as well.

Then he looked for a crop of good grapes,
but it yielded only bad fruit.

“Now you dwellers in Jerusalem and men of Judah,
judge between me and my vineyard.

What more could have been done for my vineyard
than I have done for it?

When I looked for good grapes,
why did it yield only bad?

Now I will tell you
what I am going to do to my vineyard:

I will take away its hedge,
and it will be destroyed;

I will break down its wall,
and it will be trampled.

I will make it a wasteland,
neither pruned nor cultivated,
and briers and thorns will grow there.

I will command the clouds
not to rain on it.”

The vineyard of the LORD Almighty
is the house of Israel,
and the men of Judah
are the garden of his delight.

And he looked for justice, but saw bloodshed;
for righteousness, but heard cries of distress.

Be Perfect

Perfect takes the last place.

Perfection struggles to take the seats of honor.

Perfect lives to serve.

Perfection lives to be served.

Perfect pardons sinners.

Perfection stones them.
