The care of God over his vineyard.
Isaiah 27:1 In that daye, the Lorde wt his sore, great and myghtye swearde shall viset Leuiathan þe fugityue serpent, euen Leuiathan that croked serpent, and he shall slaye the dragon þt is in the see. Isaiah 27:2 In that daye, se þt ye syng of the congregatyon which is the vyneiard, þt bringeth forth þe best wyne. Isaiah 27:3 Euen I the Lorde do kepe it. In due seasons shall I water it, & lest the enemye do it any harme, I will both nyght and daye preserue it. There is no displeasure in me, Isaiah 27:4 els (when the vyneiarde bringeth me forth breers & thornes) I wold go thorow it by warre, & burne it vp together. Isaiah 27:5 Let it take holde of my strength, and it shalbe at one wt me, euen at one shall it be with me. Isaiah 27:6 The dayes are commyng, that Iacob shall take rote. Israel shalbe grene & floryshe, and the worlde shalbe fylled with frute.

Isaiah 27:9 Thus therfore shall the iniquytie of Iacob be reconcyled, and here is all the frute of the takynge awaye of his synne, yf he make all the stones of þe aultars of ydolles, as chalke stones that are beaten in sunder, that theyr groues and ymages ryse not vp agayne. Isaiah 27:10 Els, shall the stronge citye be desolate, & the habitation forsaken & left lyke a wildernes. There shall the calfe fede, & ther shall he lye, & eate vp the graffes therof. Isaiah 27:11 When þe braunches of it are drie, they are broken of, & the wemen come, and set them on fyer. For it is a people of no vnderstanding, & therfore he that made them, shall not fauoure them, and he þt created them, shall geue them no grace.

Isaiah 27:12 And in that daye shall the Lorde make a thresshing from the middes of the riuer Euphrates vnto the riuer of Egipt: and ye children of Israel shalbe gathered together one to another. Isaiah 27:13 In þt daye shall þe great trompe be blowne, so þt they which were lost in the lande of Assiria: & they that were banisshed into þe lande of Egipt, shall come and worshyp the Lorde in the holy mount at Ierusalem:
