Isaiah 27

27
XXVII
1In that day,
Shall Jehovah with his keen and great and powerful sword
Punish Leviathan the agile serpent,
And Leviathan the winding serpent;
And shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.
2In that day,
Sing ye of her, the beloved vineyard:
3I Jehovah do guard her,
I will water her every moment:
Lest any should injure her,
I will guard her night and day.
4Anger is not in me:
Would that some one would give me the thorn and thistle in battle;
Then would I rush against them and burn them up together.
5But if any one will lay hold of my strength,
He shall make peace with me;
Peace with me shall he make.
6In time to come, Jacob shall take root;
Israel shall blossom and bud forth,
And fill the face of the world with fruit.
7Hath He smitten him, as he smote them that smote him?
Or is he slain as those are slain, whom he slew?
8With moderation did He punish her, by removing her far away;
When he swept her away by his violent storm, in the day of the east wind.
9By this therefore is the guilt of Jacob expiated,
And assuredly this is the fruit of the removal of his sin,
That when he shall cause all the stones of the altar
To be broken in sunder, like as limestones;
The images of Astarte and the statues of the sun shall no more stand up.
10For the fortified city shall be solitary,
An habitation forsaken, and deserted as a wilderness.
There shall the bullock feed, and there shall be lie down;
And consume the branches thereof.
11When the boughs thereof are withered, they shall be broken off:
Women shall come, and set them on fire:
For it is a people void of understanding;
Wherefore he that made them will not have mercy on them,
And he that formed them will shew them no favour.
12And it shall come to pass in that day,
That Jehovah will gather his fruit,
From the channel of the river,
Unto the stream of Egypt;
And ye shall be gleaned up,
One by one, O ye sons of Israel.
13And it shall come to pass in that day;
That the great trumpet shall be sounded;
And they shall come, who were perishing in the land of Assyria,
And the outcasts in the land of Egypt;
And they shall worship Jehovah
In the holy mount at Jerusalem.

Isaiah 27

27
The Deliverance of Israel
1In that day the Lord will punish Leviathan the fleeing serpent
With His fierce and great and mighty sword [rescuing Israel from her enemy],
Even Leviathan the twisted serpent;
And He will kill the dragon who lives in the sea.
2In that day [it will be said of the redeemed nation of Israel],
“A vineyard of #So DSS; MT reads beauty.wine, sing in praise of it!
3I, the Lord, am its Keeper;
I water it every moment.
So that no one will harm it,
I guard it night and day.
4I have no wrath.
Should anyone give Me briars and thorns in battle,
I would step on them, I would set them all on fire.
5Or let him (Israel) cling to My strength and rely on My protection [My stronghold],
Let him make peace with Me,
Let him make peace with Me.”
6 # Lit Those coming, Jacob. In the generations to come Jacob will take root;
Israel will blossom and sprout,
And they will fill the surface of the world with fruit.
7Like the striking #Or of him, referring to an enemy of Israel.by Him who has struck them, has He struck them?
Or like the slaughter of His slain, have they been slain?
8You contended with them by exile, by driving them away [from Canaan];
He has expelled them with His fierce wind on the day of the east wind.
9Therefore through this the wickedness [the sin, the injustice, the wrongdoing] of Jacob (Israel) will be atoned for and forgiven;
And this will be #Lit all the fruit.the full price [that God requires] for taking away his sin:
When Israel makes all the stones of the [pagan] altars like crushed chalk stones;
When the Asherim and the incense altars will not stand.
10For the fortified city is isolated,
A settlement deserted and abandoned like the desert;
There the calf will graze,
And there it will lie down and #Lit consume.feed on its branches.
11When its branches are dry, they are broken off;
The women come and #Lit set light to.make a fire with them.
For they are not a people of understanding,
Therefore He who made them will not have compassion on them,
And He who created them will not be gracious to them.
12In that day the Lord will thresh [out His grain] from the flowing stream of the River [Euphrates] to the Brook of Egypt, and you will be gathered up one by one, O sons of Israel. 13It will come to pass in that day that a great trumpet will be blown, and those who were lost and perishing in the land of Assyria and who were scattered in the land of Egypt will come and worship the Lord on the holy mountain at Jerusalem.
