New Living Translation
Why? Because you have turned from the God who can save you. You have forgotten the Rock who can hide you. So you may plant the finest grapevines and import the most expensive seedlings.
King James Bible
Because thou hast forgotten the God of thy salvation, and hast not been mindful of the rock of thy strength, therefore shalt thou plant pleasant plants, and shalt set it with strange slips:
Darby Bible Translation

Because thou hast forgotten the God of thy salvation, And the rock of thy strength hast not remembered, Therefore thou plantest plants of pleasantness, And with a strange slip sowest it,
Isaiah 17:10 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
17:10 Thou - O Israel. The rock - That God who was thy only sure defence. Plants - Excellent flowers and fruit - trees. Strange - Fetched from far countries, and therefore highly esteemed.
All your work will be for nothing, for your land will yield no crops, and your trees will bear no fruit.
You will plant vineyards and care for them, but you will not drink the wine or eat the grapes, for worms will destroy the vines.
He is the Rock; his deeds are perfect. Everything he does is just and fair. He is a faithful God who does no wrong; how just and upright he is!
You neglected the Rock who had fathered you; you forgot the God who had given you birth.
Praise the Lord; praise God our savior! For each day he carries us in his arms. Interlude
See, God has come to save me. I will trust in him and not be afraid. The LORD God is my strength and my song; he has given me victory."
Their largest cities will be like a deserted forest, like the land the Hivites and Amorites abandoned when the Israelites came here so long ago. It will be utterly desolate.
