In 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.
In that day: "A pleasant vineyard, sing of it!
I, the LORD, am its keeper; every moment I water it. Lest any one harm it, I guard it night and day;
I have no wrath. Would that I had thorns and briers to battle! I would set out against them, I would burn them up together.
Or let them lay hold of my protection, let them make peace with me, let them make peace with me."
In days to come Jacob shall take root, Israel shall blossom and put forth shoots, and fill the whole world with fruit.
