The LORD's Vineyard

1In that day the LORD will take His sharp, great, and mighty sword, and bring judgment on Leviathan, the fleeing serpent—Leviathan, the coiling serpent—and He will slay the dragon of the sea. 2In that day:

“Sing about a fruitful vineyard.

3I, the LORD, am its keeper;

I water it continually.

I guard it night and day

so no one can disturb it.

4I am not angry.

If only thorns and briers confronted Me,

I would march and trample them,

I would burn them to the ground.

5Or let them lay claim to My protection;

let them make peace with Me—

yes, let them make peace with Me.”

6In the days to come, Jacob will take root.

Israel will bud and blossom

and fill the whole world with fruit.

7Has the LORD struck Israel as He struck her oppressors?

Was she killed like those who slayed her?

8By warfarea and exile You contended with her

and removed her with a fierce wind

like the day of the east wind.

9Therefore Jacob’s guilt will be atoned for,

and the fruit of the removal of his sin will be this:b

When he makes all the altar stones

like crushed bits of chalk,

no Asherah poles or incense altars

will remain standing.

10For the fortified city will be deserted,

a homestead abandoned and forsaken like a wilderness.

There the calves will graze,

and there they will lie down and strip its branches bare.

11When its limbs are dry,

they will be broken off.

Women will come and use them for kindling,

for they are a people without understanding.

Therefore their Maker will have no compassion on them,

and their Creator will show them no grace.

12In that day the LORD will thresh from the flowing Euphratesc to the Wadi of Egypt, and you, O Israelites, will be gathered one by one. 13And in that day a great trumpet will sound, and those who were perishing in Assyria will come forth with those who were exiles in Egypt. And they will worship the LORD on the holy mountain in Jerusalem.
