Isaiah 27:2-6 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

    [a]On that day—
The pleasant vineyard, sing about it!
    I, the Lord, am its keeper,
    I water it every moment;
Lest anyone harm it,
    night and day I guard it.
I am not angry.
    But if I were to find briers and thorns,
In battle I would march against it;
    I would burn it all.
But if it holds fast to my refuge,
    it shall have peace with me;
    it shall have peace with me.

In days to come Jacob shall take root,
    Israel shall sprout and blossom,
    covering all the world with fruit.

Footnotes:

  1. 27:2–5 This passage mitigates the harsh words on Israel as the Lord’s vineyard in 5:1–7; here is given the rain there withheld, though Israel’s welfare is still made dependent on fidelity.
