The care of God over his vineyard.
Isaiah 27:1 In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sworde shall punish Leuiathan the piercing serpent, euen Leuiathan that crooked serpent, and hee shall slay the dragon that [is] in the Sea. Isaiah 27:2 In that day, sing yee vnto her; A vineyard of red wine. Isaiah 27:3 I the LORD doe keepe it; I will water it euery moment: lest any hurt it, I will keepe it night and day. Isaiah 27:4 Furie [is] not in mee: who would set the briars [and] thornes against me in battell? I would goe through them, I would burne them together. Isaiah 27:5 Or let him take holde of my strength, [that] he may make peace with me, [and] he shall make peace with me. Isaiah 27:6 Hee shall cause them that come of Iacob to take roote: Israel shall blossome and budde, and fill the face of the world with fruite.
His chastisements differ from judgments.
Isaiah 27:7 Hath hee smitten him, as hee smote those that smote him? [or] is hee slaine according to the slaughter of them that are slaine by him? Isaiah 27:8 In measure when it shooteth foorth, thou wilt debate with it: hee stayeth his rough winde in the day of the East winde. Isaiah 27:9 By this therefore shall the iniquitie of Iacob be purged, and this [is] all the fruit, to take away his sinne: when he maketh all the stones of the Altar as chalke stones, that are beaten in sunder, the groues and images shall not stand vp. Isaiah 27:10 Yet the defenced citie shall be desolate, [and] the habitation forsaken, and left like a wildernesse: there shall the calfe feede, and there shall he lie downe, and consume the branches thereof. Isaiah 27:11 When the boughes thereof are withered, they shall be broken off: the women come [and] set them on fire: for it is a people of no vnderstanding: therefore hee that made them will not haue mercie on them, and hee that formed them, will shewe them no fauour.
The Church of Jews and Gentiles.
Isaiah 27:12 And it shall come to passe in that day, that the LORD shall beate off from the chanell of the riuer vnto the streame of Egypt, and ye shall bee gathered one by one, O ye children of Israel. Isaiah 27:13 And it shall come to passe in that day, that the great trumpet shall bee blowen, 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 holy mount at Ierusalem.
