[Isaiah 5:1-7 NASB20] (1) Let me sing now for my beloved A song of my beloved about His vineyard. My beloved had a vineyard on a fertile hill. (2) He dug it all around, cleared it of stones, And planted it with the choicest vine. And He built a tower in the middle of it, And also carved out a wine vat in it; Then He expected [it] to produce [good] grapes, But it produced [only] worthless ones. (3) "And now, you inhabitants of Jerusalem and people of Judah, Judge between Me and My vineyard. (4) "What more was there to do for My vineyard that I have not done in it? Why, [when] I expected [it] to produce [good] grapes did it produce worthless ones? (5) "So now let Me tell you what I am going to do to My vineyard: I will remove its hedge and it will be consumed; I will break down its wall and it will become trampled ground. (6) "I will lay it waste; It will not be pruned nor hoed, But briars and thorns will come up. I will also command the clouds not to rain on it." (7) For the vineyard of the LORD of armies is the house of Israel, And the people of Judah are His delightful plant. So He waited for justice, but behold, [there was] bloodshed; For righteousness, but behold, a cry for help.
What does building a tower add to this prophecy?
Might it be related to:
[Isaiah 5:8 NASB20] (8) Woe to those who attach house to house [and] join field to field, Until there is no more room, And you alone are a landowner in the midst of the land!
