The care of God over his vineyard.
Isaiah 27:1 In that day lay a charge doth Jehovah, With his swordthe sharp, and the great, and the strong, On leviathana fleeing serpent, And on leviathana crooked serpent, And He hath slain the dragon that [is] in the sea. Isaiah 27:2 In that day, 'A desirable vineyard,' respond ye to her, Isaiah 27:3 I, Jehovah, am its keeper, every moment I water it, Lest any lay a charge against it, Night and day I keep it! Isaiah 27:4 Fury is not in Me; Who giveth Me a briera thorn in battle? I step into it, I burn it at once. Isaiah 27:5 Orhe doth take hold on My strength, He doth make peace with Me, Peace he doth make with Me. Isaiah 27:6 Those coming in He causeth to take root, Jacob doth blossom, and flourished hath Israel, And they have filled the face of the world [with] increase.
His chastisements differ from judgments.
Isaiah 27:7 As the smiting of his smiter hath He smitten him? As the slaying of his slain doth He slay? Isaiah 27:8 In measure, in sending it forth, thou strivest with it, He hath taken away by His sharp wind, In the day of an east wind, Isaiah 27:9 Therefore by this is the iniquity of Jacob covered, And this [is] all the fruitTo take away his sin, in His setting all the stones of an altar, As chalkstones beaten in pieces, They rise notshrines and images. Isaiah 27:10 For the fenced city [is] alone, A habitation cast out and forsaken as a wilderness, There doth the calf delight, And there it lieth down, And hath consumed its branches. Isaiah 27:11 In the withering of its branch it is broken off, Women are coming in setting it on fire, For it [is] not a people of understanding, Therefore pity it not doth its Maker, And its Former doth not favour it.
The Church of Jews and Gentiles.
Isaiah 27:12 And it hath come to pass, in that day, Beat out doth Jehovah from the branch of the river, Unto the stream of Egypt, And ye are gathered one by one, O sons of Israel. Isaiah 27:13 And it hath come to pass, in that day, It is blown with a great trumpet, And come in have those perishing in the land of Asshur, And those cast out in the land of Egypt, And have bowed themselves to Jehovah, In the holy mountin Jerusalem!
