Deliverance of Israel

27 In that day,o

the Lord will punish with his swordp

his fierce, great and powerful sword—

Leviathanq the gliding serpent,r

Leviathan the coiling serpent;

he will slay the monsters of the sea.

In that dayt

“Singu about a fruitful vineyard:v

3 I, the Lord, watch over it;

I waterw it continually.

I guardx it day and night

so that no one may harmy it.

4 I am not angry.

If only there were briers and thorns confronting me!

I would march against them in battle;

I would set them all on fire.z

Or else let them come to me for refuge;a

let them make peaceb with me,

yes, let them make peace with me.”

In days to come Jacob will take root,c

Israel will bud and blossomd

and fill all the world with fruit.e

Has the Lord struck her

as he struckf down those who struck her?

Has she been killed

as those were killed who killed her?

By warfarea and exileg you contend with her—

with his fierce blast he drives her out,

as on a day the east windh blows.

By this, then, will Jacob’s guilt be atonedi for,

and this will be the full fruit of the removal of his sin:j

When he makes all the altar stonesk

to be like limestone crushed to pieces,

no Asherah polesb l or incense altarsm

will be left standing.

10 The fortified city stands desolate,n

an abandoned settlement, forsakeno like the wilderness;

there the calves graze,p

there they lie down;q

they strip its branches bare.

11 When its twigs are dry, they are broken offr

and women come and make firess with them.

For this is a people without understanding;t

so their Maker has no compassion on them,

and their Creatoru shows them no favor.v

12 In that day the Lord will threshw from the flowing Euphrates to the Wadi of Egypt,x and you, Israel, will be gatheredy up one by one. 13 And in that dayz a great trumpeta will sound. Those who were perishing in Assyria and those who were exiledb in Egyptc will come and worshipd the Lord on the holy mountaine in Jerusalem.
