Isaiah 27:1 Then the LORDE with his heuye, great and loge swearde shal vyset Leuiatha, that invincible serpet: eue Leuiatha yt croked serpent, and shal slaye the Wallfish in ye see. Isaiah 27:2 At the same tyme shal me synge of the vynyarde of Muscatel. Isaiah 27:3 I the LORDE kepe it, and water it in due season. I watch daye & night, that no man breake in to it.
