Isaiah 27

The Deliverance of Israel

1In that day a  the  Lord will punish
Or sea monster
c  Leviathan the fleeing serpent,
With His fierce and great and mighty sword,
Or sea monster
Leviathan the twisted serpent;
And e  He will kill the dragon who lives in the sea.

2In that day,
Some mss read a vineyard of delight
g  vineyard of wine, sing of it!
3“I, the  Lord, am its keeper;
h  I water it every moment.
So that no one will
Lit punish
damage it,
I j  guard it night and day.
4I have no wrath.
Lit who
someone give Me l  briars and thorns in battle,
Then I would step on them, m  I would burn them
Lit altogether
5Or let him
Lit take hold of
p  rely on My protection,
Let him make peace with Me,
Let him q  make peace with Me.”
Lit Those coming
In the days to come Jacob s  will take root,
Israel will t  blossom and sprout,
And they will fill the
Lit face of
whole world with v  fruit.

7Like the striking of Him who has struck them, has w  He struck them?
Or like the slaughter of His slain
Lit he was slain
have they been slain?
8You contended with them
Some ancient versions read by exact measure
by banishing them, by z  driving them away.
With His fierce wind He has expelled them on the day of the aa  east wind.
9Therefore through this Jacob’s iniquity will be ab  forgiven;
And this will be
Lit all the fruit
the full price of the
Lit removing
ae  pardoning of his sin:
When he makes all the af  altar stones like pulverized chalk stones;
I.e. wooden symbols of a female deity
Asherim and incense altars will not stand.
10For the fortified city is ah  isolated,
Lit pasture
homestead forlorn and forsaken like the desert;
aj  There the calf will graze,
And there it will lie down and
Lit consume
feed on its branches.
11When its al  limbs are dry, they are broken off;
Women come and make a fire with them,
For they are not a people of am  discernment,
Therefore an  their Maker ao  will not have compassion on them.
And their Creator will not be gracious to them.

12In that day the  Lord ap  will start His threshing from the flowing stream of the aq  Euphrates to the brook of Egypt, and you will be ar  gathered up one by one, O sons of Israel. 13It will come about also in that day that a great as  trumpet will be blown, and those who were perishing in the land of at  Assyria and who were scattered in the land of Egypt will come and au  worship the  Lord in the holy mountain at Jerusalem.
