Leviathan the Dragon

27 In that day Adonai will punish
Leviathan the fleeing serpent
with His fierce, great, strong sword,
Leviathan the twisted serpent!
He will slay the dragon in the sea.

Second Song of the Vineyard

“In that day sing to her,
‘A vineyard of delight!’
I, Adonai, watch over it,
I water it every moment.
I guard it day and night,
so that no one may harm it.
It is not that I have wrath.
Who would give me thorns and thistles?
Into battle I would march against them!
I would burn them up altogether!
Rather let them rely on My strength.
Let them make peace with Me—
    make peace with Me.”

Israel Will Blossom Again

In days to come Jacob will take root,
Israel will blossom and bud
    and fill the face of the world with fruit.
Did He strike Israel
    as He struck those who struck them?
Or were they slain
    as their slayers were slain?
You contended with her by banishing her,
    by driving her away.
With His fierce wind He expelled them
    on the day of the east wind.
So by this will Jacob’s sin be atoned
and this the full price to remove his sin:
When he makes all the altar stones
    like shattered chalk stones,
so that the Asherah poles and incense
    rise no more.
10 The fortified city is a lonely habitation,
forlorn and forsaken like the desert.
There the calf will graze,
there lie down
and consume its branches.
11 When the boughs are withered,
they will be broken off.
Women come and set them on fire,
for it is a people of no understanding.
Therefore their Maker will show them no mercy—
    He who formed them will give them no grace.

12 It will come about in that day,
Adonai will thresh from the channel of the River to the Wadi of Egypt,
and you will be gathered one by one, Bnei-Yisrael.

13 It will also come about in that day, a great shofar will be blown.[a] Those perishing in the land of Assyria and the exiles in the land of Egypt will come and worship Adonai on the holy mountain in Jerusalem.
