Reading Isaiah’s Mind – Chapter five – verses 1-15*

Kerem – a proto-Semitic noun, meaning: “vineyard”. In Arabic, it signifies: “vine” or “grapevine”, which is “the” produce (substance) of a vineyard. It can alsoImage result for God's bride denote a garden, an orchard or a piece of land covered with plants, i.e. a garden-plot.  The phrase “ Vineyard of the Lord” is a metaphor (figure of speech) symbolizing “The-People-of-Israel” (people who are upright in the eyes of God), thus,  the “Vineyard of the Lord” and “Israel’s-people” are “one and the same”. Anciently, Israel’s people adopted viticulture (science, production, and study of grapes)only gradually.   (Genesis 9:20) indicates that Noah planted a vineyard and in (1 Samuel 22:7), King Saul had the prerogative (entitlement; privilege) of giving “fields and vineyards” to his followers.  Isaiah uses the expression “ba’ar ha-kerem”“devour-the-vineyard” to describe the intent of Jerusalem’s ruling-aristocracy. Among the kings of Judah, Uzziah is said to have been devoted to viticulture and in his service, were vine-dressers, i.e. Koremin  (care-takers; custodians ).  Owning a vineyard was then and still is a luxury reserved for The Wealthy (ruling-class; landowners).  Both “Wine” and “vineyards” are associated with God’s blessing. The demanding labor required to maintain a vineyard is referenced in this (the-fifth) chapter of Isaiah, (verses 1-6). Pruning was required, in order to rid the vineyard of superfluous (redundant; excess; nonessential) growth . There was a prohibition against mixing-things (co-mingling holy things with profane things, i.e. things that were not suited to be together). This  includes sowing seed (offspring; progeny; children) in the vineyard originating from of two different (divergent; disparate) species (classes; varieties; kinds; types; ancestries) . If that prohibition was ignored the whole yield (crop; harvest) needs to regarded as “holy” and was withdrawn from secular use entirely, because of the danger that “holiness” poses to that which is profane. In the ultimate metaphorical sense, “vineyard” (kerem) represents the “female-body” and it symbolizes Jehovah’s “Bride” in (Cant. 4:12 -5: 1). Against this backdrop, we can fully appreciate the description of Israel as Jehovah “vineyard”.  The “vineyard” represents Jehovah’s female- partner (his-bride) . The “vineyard” is, in a very literal-sense,God’s “Field-of-Dreams” (delight).
