Isaiah 1:8- Zion is like a “hut in a cucumber field”

Daughter Zion is left
like a shelter in a vineyard,
like a hut in a cucumber field,
like a city under siege. (Isaiah 1:8 NIV)

God has barely allowed Judah/Jerusalem to survive the catastrophes that have come upon them because of their sins. This verse could be a reference to the Assyrian siege (see Isaiah 36:1-2), although many scholars think this prophecy came earlier.
