The Deliverance of Israel

1 In that day 1the LORD will punish 2Leviathan the fleeing serpent, With His fierce and great and mighty sword, Even Leviathan the twisted serpent; And 3He will kill the dragon who lives in the sea.
2 In that day, "A 4vineyard of wine, sing of it!
3 "I, the LORD, am its keeper; 5I water it every moment. So that no one will damage it, I 6guard it night and day.
4 "I have no wrath. Should someone give Me 7briars and thorns in battle, Then I would step on them, 8I would burn them completely.
5 "Or let him 9rely on My protection, Let him make peace with Me, Let him 10make peace with Me."
6 In the days to come Jacob 11will take root, Israel will 12blossom and sprout, And they will fill the whole world with 13fruit.
7 Like the striking of Him who has struck them, has 14He struck them? Or like the slaughter of His slain, have they been slain?
8 You contended with them by banishing them, by 15driving them away. With His fierce wind He has expelled them on the day of the 16east wind.
9 Therefore through this Jacob's iniquity will be 17forgiven; And this will be the full price of the 18pardoning of his sin: When he makes all the 19altar stones like pulverized chalk stones; When Asherim and incense altars will not stand.
10 For the fortified city is 20isolated, A homestead forlorn and forsaken like the desert; 21There the calf will graze, And there it will lie down and feed on its branches.
11 When its 22limbs are dry, they are broken off; Women come and make a fire with them, For they are not a people of 23discernment, Therefore * 24their Maker 25will not have compassion on them. And their Creator will not be gracious to them.
12 In that day the LORD 26will start His threshing from the flowing stream of the 27Euphrates to the brook of Egypt, and you will be 28gathered up one by one, O sons of Israel.
13 It will come about also in that day that a great 29trumpet will be blown, and those who were perishing in the land of 30Assyria and who were scattered in the land of Egypt will come and 31worship the LORD in the holy mountain at Jerusalem.
