The care of God over his vineyard.
Isaiah 27:1 In that day, will Yahweh, With his swordthe hard and the great and the strong, Bring punishment, Upon Leviathan, the fleeing serpent, And upon Leviathan, the crooked serpent,And will slay the monster which is in the sea. Isaiah 27:2 In that day, A Wine-Vineyard! sing ye unto her: Isaiah 27:3 IYahweh, am Watching over her, Every moment, will I water her,Lest anyone injure her, Night and day, will I watch over her. Isaiah 27:4 Fury, have I none,Oh that there were delivered to me, briars and thorns, in battle! I would march in among them, I would set fire to them, one and all. Isaiah 27:5 Else, let one lay hold of my protection, Let him make peace with me,Peace, let him make with me. Isaiah 27:6 In coming times, shall Jacob, strike root, Israel, shall blossom and bud,Then shall they fill the face of the world with fruit.
His chastisements differ from judgments.
Isaiah 27:7 Was it, with the smiting of his smiter, that he smote him? Or, as with the slaying of his slayer, was he slain? Isaiah 27:8 By driving her awayby dismissing her, wouldest thou contend with her? He removed her by his rough wind, in a day of east wind. Isaiah 27:9 Therefore, hereby, shall a propitiatory-covering be put over the iniquity of Jacob, And all, this, is the fruit of taking away his sin,When he maketh all the stones of an altar like chalk-stones that soon crumble, Sacred Stems and Sun Images, shall not arise. Isaiah 27:10 For, the fortified city, is solitary, The dwelling forsaken, and left as a wilderness,There, shall the calf feed, And, there, lie down, And shall consume the branches thereof: Isaiah 27:11 When the cut-off boughs thereof are dry, they shall be broken to pieces, Women, coming, are kindling it! For it is, not a people of understanding, For this cause, Will he that made him, not have compassion upon him, And, he that formed him, will shew him no favour.

Isaiah 27:12 And it shall come to pass, in that day, That Yahweh will beat off his fruit from the stream of the River [=Euphrates], unto the torrent-valley of Egypt,And, ye, shall be picked up, one by one, O sons of Israel. Isaiah 27:13 And it shall come to pass, in that day, That there shall be a blowing with a great horn, Then shall come in, Such as have wandered in the land of Assyria, And such as have been outcasts in the land of Egypt,And they shall bow themselves down unto Yahweh, In the holy mountain, In Jerusalem.
