The Webster Bible (WBT) New International Version (NIV)
1 In that day the LORD with his keen and great and strong sword will punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he will slay the dragon that [is] in the sea. 1 In that day, the LORD will punish with his sword, his fierce, great and powerful sword, Leviathan the gliding serpent, Leviathan the coiling serpent; he will slay the monster of the sea.
2 In that day sing ye to her, A vineyard of red wine. 2 In that day-- "Sing about a fruitful vineyard:
3 I the LORD do keep it; I will water it every moment: lest [any] hurt it, I will keep it night and day. 3 I, the LORD, watch over it; I water it continually. I guard it day and night so that no one may harm it.
4 Fury [is] not in me: who would set the briers [and] thorns against me in battle? I would go through them, I would burn them together. 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.
5 Or let him take hold of my strength, [that] he may make peace with me, [and] he shall make peace with me. 5 Or else let them come to me for refuge; let them make peace with me, yes, let them make peace with me."
6 He shall cause them that descend from Jacob to take root: Israel shall blossom and bud, and fill the face of the world with fruit. 6 In days to come Jacob will take root, Israel will bud and blossom and fill all the world with fruit.
7 Hath he smitten him, as he smote those that smote him? [or] is he slain according to the slaughter of them that are slain by him? 7 Has [the LORD] struck her as he struck down those who struck her? Has she been killed as those were killed who killed her?
8 In measure, when it shooteth forth, thou wilt debate with it: he stayeth his rough wind in the day of the east wind. 8 By warfare and exile you contend with her-- with his fierce blast he drives her out, as on a day the east wind blows.
9 By this therefore shall the iniquity of Jacob be purged; and this [is] all the fruit to take away his sin; when he maketh all the stones of the altar as chalk-stones that are beaten asunder, the groves and images shall not stand up. 9 By this, then, will Jacob's guilt be atoned for, and this will be the full fruitage of the removal of his sin: When he makes all the altar stones to be like chalk stones crushed to pieces, no Asherah poles or incense altars will be left standing.
10 Yet the fortified city [shall be] desolate, [and] the habitation forsaken, and left like a wilderness: there shall the calf feed, and there shall he lie down, and consume its branches. 10 The fortified city stands desolate, an abandoned settlement, forsaken like the desert; there the calves graze, there they lie down; they strip its branches bare.
11 When its boughs are withered, they shall be broken off: the women come [and] set them on fire: for it [is] a people of no understanding: therefore he that made them will not have mercy on them, and he that formed them will show them no favor. 11 When its twigs are dry, they are broken off and women come and make fires with them. For this is a people without understanding; so their Maker has no compassion on them, and their Creator shows them no favor.
12 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the LORD shall gather from the channel of the river to the stream of Egypt, and ye shall be gathered one by one, O ye children of Israel. 12 In that day the LORD will thresh from the flowing Euphrates to the Wadi of Egypt, and you, O Israelites, will be gathered up one by one.
13 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the great trumpet shall be blown, and they shall come who were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship the LORD on the holy mount at Jerusalem. 13 And in that day a great trumpet will sound. Those who were perishing in Assyria and those who were exiled in Egypt will come and worship the LORD on the holy mountain in Jerusalem.
