The Book of the Prophet Isaiah

Chapter 27

The people of Israel will blossom and bud and fill the earth with fruit—They will be gathered one by one and will worship the Lord.

 In that day the Lord with his asore and great and strong bsword shall punish cleviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked dserpent; and he shall slay the edragon that is in the sea.

 In that day asing ye unto her, A vineyard of red wine.

 I the Lord do keep it; I will water it every moment: lest any hurt it, I will keep it night and day.

 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.

 Or let him take hold of my strength, that he may make peace with me; and he shall make peace with me.

 He shall cause them that come of Jacob to take root: aIsrael shall blossom and bud, and fill the face of the world with bfruit.

 ¶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?

 In measure, when it shooteth forth, thou wilt debate with it: he stayeth his rough wind in the day of the east wind.

 By this therefore shall the iniquity of Jacob be apurged; and this is all the fruit to take away his sin; when he maketh all the stones of the altar as chalkstones that are beaten in sunder, the groves and bimages shall not stand up.

 10 Yet the defenced 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 the branches thereof.

 11 When the aboughs thereof are withered, they shall be broken off: the women come, and set them on fire: for it is a people of no bunderstanding: therefore he that cmade them will not have mercy on them, and he that formed them will shew them no favour.

 12 ¶And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall abeat off bfrom the channel of the river unto the stream of Egypt, and ye shall be cgathered one by one, O ye children of Israel.

 13 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the agreat trumpet shall be blown, and they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship the Lord in the bholy mount at Jerusalem.
