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
1In that day the Lord with his hard and great and strong sword will punish Leviathan the fleeing serpent, Leviathan the twisting serpent, and he will slay the dragon that is in the sea.
2In that day:
“A pleasant vineyard, sing of it!
3I, the Lord, am its keeper;
every moment I water it.
Lest any one harm it,
I guard it night and day;
4I have no wrath.
Would that I had thorns and briers to battle!
I would set out against them,
I would burn them up together.
5Or let them lay hold of my protection,
let them make peace with me,
let them make peace with me.”
6In days to come#27.6 Heb Those to come Jacob shall take root,
Israel shall blossom and put forth shoots,
and fill the whole world with fruit.
7Has he smitten them as he smote those who smote them?
Or have they been slain as their slayers were slain?
8Measure by measure,#27.8 Compare Syr Vg Tg: The meaning of the Hebrew word is unknown by exile thou didst contend with them;
he removed them with his fierce blast in the day of the east wind.
9Therefore by this the guilt of Jacob will be expiated,
and this will be the full fruit of the removal of his sin:
when he makes all the stones of the altars
like chalkstones crushed to pieces,
no Asherim or incense altars will remain standing.
10For the fortified city is solitary,
a habitation deserted and forsaken, like the wilderness;
there the calf grazes,
there he lies down, and strips its branches.
11When its boughs are dry, they are broken;
women come and make a fire of them.
For this is a people without discernment;
therefore he who made them will not have compassion on them,
he that formed them will show them no favor.
12In that day from the river Euphrates to the Brook of Egypt the Lord will thresh out the grain, and you will be gathered one by one, O people of Israel. 13#Mt 24.31; 1 Cor 15.52; 1 Thess 4.16. And in that day a great trumpet will be blown, and those who were lost in the land of Assyria and those who were driven out to the land of Egypt will come and worship the Lord on the holy mountain at Jerusalem.
