Isaiah 5:8-9 Deserted and no Produce. What consequences?

Isa 5:8 You are doomed! You buy more houses and fields to add to those you already have. Soon there will be no place for anyone else to live, and you alone will live in the land.
Isa 5:9 I have heard the LORD Almighty say, “All these big, fine houses will be empty ruins.
Isa 5:10 The grapevines growing on five acres of land will yield only five gallons of wine. Ten bushels of seed will produce only one bushel of grain.”

:8 You are doomed!

Woe unto them … – The prophet now proceeds to “specify” some of the crimes to which he had referred in the parable of the vineyard, of which the Jews had been guilty. The first is “avarice.”

These field which were seized and added to already huge acreages will produce nothing. Greed pauperises the soul. This is folly.

Even though Isaiah was prophesying to Judah and Jerusalem, it is still applicable to our day. How Horrible it will be for the Greedy.
