Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 27:2 - In that day,
“A pleasant vineyard,[fn] sing of it!
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 27:3 - I, the LORD, am its keeper;
every moment I water it.
Lest anyone punish it,
I keep it night and day;
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 27:4 - I have no wrath.
Would that I had thorns and briers to battle!
I would march against them,
I would burn them up together.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 27:5 - Or let them lay hold of my protection,
let them make peace with me,
let them make peace with me.”

Israel shall blossom and put forth shoots
and fill the whole world with fruit.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 27:7 - Has he struck them as he struck those who struck them?
Or have they been slain as their slayers were slain?
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 27:8 - Measure by measure,[fn] by exile you contended with them;
he removed them with his fierce breath[fn] in the day of the east wind.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 27:9 - Therefore by this the guilt of Jacob will be atoned for,
and this will be the full fruit of the removal of his sin:[fn]
when he makes all the stones of the altars
like chalkstones crushed to pieces,
no Asherim or incense altars will remain standing.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 27:10 - For the fortified city is solitary,
a habitation deserted and forsaken, like the wilderness;
there the calf grazes;
there it lies down and strips its branches.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 27:11 - When its boughs are dry, they are broken;
women come and make a fire of them.
For this is a people without discernment;
therefore he who made them will not have compassion on them;
he who formed them will show them no favor.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 27:12 - In that day from the river Euphrates[fn] to the Brook of Egypt the LORD will thresh out the grain, and you will be gleaned one by one, O people of Israel.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 27:13 - And in that day a great trumpet will be blown, and those who were lost in the land of Assyria and those who were driven out to the land of Egypt will come and worship the LORD on the holy mountain at Jerusalem.
