Isaiah 5: 1- 7
||I will sing to my beloved the canticle of my paternal cousin, about his vineyard. A vineyard was made for my beloved, at the horn in the son of oil.
||And he fenced it in, and he picked the stones out of it, and he planted it with the best vines, and he built a tower in the middle of it, and he set up a winepress within it. And he expected it to produce grapes, but it produced wild vines.
||Now then, inhabitants of Jerusalem and men of Judah: judge between me and my vineyard.
||What more should I have done for my vineyard that I did not do for it? Should I not have expected it to produce grapes, though it produced wild vines?
||And now, I will reveal to you what I will do to my vineyard. I will take away its fence, and it will be plundered. I will pull down its wall, and it will be trampled.
||And I will make it desolate. It will not be pruned, and it will not be dug. And briers and thorns will rise up. And I will command the clouds not to rain upon it.
||For the vineyard of the Lord of hosts is the house of Israel. And the man of Judah is his delightful seedling. And I expected that he would do judgment, and behold iniquity, and that he would do justice, and behold an outcry.
Philippians 4: 6-9
4:6 Be anxious about nothing. But in all things, with prayer and supplication, with acts of thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God.
4:7 And so shall the peace of God, which exceeds all understanding, guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
4:8 Concerning the rest, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is chaste, whatever is just, whatever is holy, whatever is worthy to be loved, whatever is of good repute, if there is any virtue, if there is any praiseworthy discipline: meditate on these.
4:9 All the things that you have learned and accepted and heard and seen in me, do these. And so shall the God of peace be with you.
Matthew 21: 33-43
21:33 Listen to another parable. There was a man, the father of a family, who planted a vineyard, and surrounded it with a hedge, and dug a press in it, and built a tower. And he loaned it out to farmers, and he set out to sojourn abroad.
21:34 Then, when the time of the fruits drew near, he sent his servants to the farmers, so that they might receive its fruits.
21:35 And the farmers apprehended his servants; they struck one, and killed another, and stoned yet another.
21:36 Again, he sent other servants, more than before; and they treated them similarly.
21:37 Then, at the very end, he sent his son to them, saying: ‘They will revere my son.’
21:38 But the farmers, seeing the son, said among themselves: ‘This is the heir. Come, let us kill him, and then we will have his inheritance.’
21:39 And apprehending him, they cast him outside the vineyard, and they killed him.
21:40 Therefore, when the lord of the vineyard arrives, what will he do to those farmers?”
21:41 They said to him, “He will bring those evil men to an evil end, and he will loan out his vineyard to other farmers, who shall repay to him the fruit in its time.”
21:42 Jesus said to them: “Have you never read in the Scriptures: ‘The stone that the builders have rejected has become the cornerstone. By the Lord has this been done, and it is wonderful in our eyes?’
21:43 Therefore, I say to you, that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you, and it shall be given to a people who shall produce its fruits.
