• Isaiah 5:1-7
    Now let me sing to my Well-beloved
    A song of my Beloved regarding His vineyard:
    My Well-beloved has a vineyard
    On a very fruitful hill.
    He dug it up and cleared out its stones,
    And planted it with the choicest vine.
    He built a tower in its midst,
    And also made a winepress in it;
    So He expected it to bring forth good grapes,
    But it brought forth wild grapes.
    ' And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem and men of Judah,
    Judge, please, between Me and My vineyard.
    What more could have been done to My vineyard
    That I have not done in it?
    Why then, when I expected it to bring forth good grapes,
    Did it bring forth wild grapes?
    And now, please let Me tell you what I will do to My vineyard:
    I will take away its hedge, and it shall be burned;
    And break down its wall, and it shall be trampled down.
    I will lay it waste;
    It shall not be pruned or dug,
    But there shall come up briers and thorns.
    I will also command the clouds
    That they rain no rain on it.'
    For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel,
    And the men of Judah are His pleasant plant.
    He looked for justice, but behold, oppression;
    For righteousness, but behold, a cry for help.
     
  • Psalm 80:8-15
    You have brought a vine out of Egypt;
    You have cast out the nations, and planted it.
    You prepared room for it,
    And caused it to take deep root,
    And it filled the land.
    The hills were covered with its shadow,
    And the mighty cedars with its boughs.
    She sent out her boughs to the Sea,
    And her branches to the River. Why have You broken down her hedges,
    So that all who pass by the way pluck her fruit?
    The boar out of the woods uproots it,
    And the wild beast of the field devours it. Return, we beseech You, O God of hosts;
    Look down from heaven and see,
    And visit this vine
    And the vineyard which Your right hand has planted,
    And the branch that You made strong for Yourself.

     
  • Hosea 10:1
    Israel empties his vine;
    He brings forth fruit for himself.
    According to the multitude of his fruit
    He has increased the altars;
    According to the bounty of his land
    They have embellished his sacred pillars.

     
  • Jeremiah 2:21
    Yet I had planted you a noble vine, a seed of highest quality.
    How then have you turned before Me
    Into the degenerate plant of an alien vine?

     
  • Ezekiel 19:10
    ‘ Your mother was like a vine in your bloodline,
    Planted by the waters,
    Fruitful and full of branches
    Because of many waters.

     
  • Matthew 21:33-40
    'Hear another parable: There was a certain landowner who planted a vineyard and set a hedge around it, dug a winepress in it and built a tower. And he leased it to vinedressers and went into a far country. Now when vintage-time drew near, he sent his servants to the vinedressers, that they might receive its fruit. And the vinedressers took his servants, beat one, killed one, and stoned another. Again he sent other servants, more than the first, and they did likewise to them. Then last of all he sent his son to them, saying, 'They will respect my son.' But when the vinedressers saw the son, they said among themselves, 'This is the heir. Come, let us kill him and seize his inheritance.' So they took him and cast him out of the vineyard and killed him. 'Therefore, when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those vinedressers?'
     
  • Luke 20:9-17
    Then He began to tell the people this parable: “A certain man planted a vineyard, leased it to vinedressers, and went into a far country for a long time. Now at vintage-time he sent a servant to the vinedressers, that they might give him some of the fruit of the vineyard. But the vinedressers beat him and sent him away empty-handed. Again he sent another servant; and they beat him also, treated him shamefully, and sent him away empty-handed. And again he sent a third; and they wounded him also and cast him out. “Then the owner of the vineyard said, ‘What shall I do? I will send my beloved son. Probably they will respect him when they see him.’ But when the vinedressers saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, ‘This is the heir. Come, let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours.’ So they cast him out of the vineyard and killed him. Therefore what will the owner of the vineyard do to them? He will come and destroy those vinedressers and give the vineyard to others.” And when they heard it they said, “Certainly not!” Then He looked at them and said, “What then is this that is written:
    ‘ The stone which the builders rejected
    Has become the chief cornerstone’?
