New Living Translation
The LORD will mediate between peoples and will settle disputes between strong nations far away. They will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will no longer fight against nation, nor train for war anymore.
King James Bible

He will delight in obeying the LORD. He will not judge by appearance nor make a decision based on hearsay.
The wolf and the lamb will feed together. The lion will eat hay like a cow. But the snakes will eat dust. In those days no one will be hurt or destroyed on my holy mountain. I, the LORD, have spoken!"
Hammer your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears. Train even your weaklings to be warriors.
