Parallel
27
Leviathan the Dragon
1In that day Adonai will punish Leviathan the fleeing serpent with His fierce, great, strong sword, Leviathan the twisted serpent! He will slay the dragon in the sea.
Second Song of the Vineyard
2“In that day sing to her, ‘A vineyard of delight!’
3I, Adonai, watch over it, I water it every moment. I guard it day and night, so that no one may harm it.
4It is not that I have wrath. Who would give me thorns and thistles? Into battle I would march against them! I would burn them up altogether!
5Rather let them rely on My strength. Let them make peace with Me— make peace with Me.”
Israel Will Blossom Again
6In days to come Jacob will take root, Israel will blossom and bud and fill the face of the world with fruit.
7Did He strike Israel as He struck those who struck them? Or were they slain as their slayers were slain?
8You contended with her by banishing her, by driving her away. With His fierce wind He expelled them on the day of the east wind.
9So by this will Jacob’s sin be atoned and this the full price to remove his sin: When he makes all the altar stones like shattered chalk stones, so that the Asherah poles and incense rise no more.
10The fortified city is a lonely habitation, forlorn and forsaken like the desert. There the calf will graze, there lie down and consume its branches.
11When the boughs are withered, they will be broken off. Women come and set them on fire, for it is a people of no understanding. Therefore their Maker will show them no mercy—He who formed them will give them no grace.
12It will come about in that day, Adonai will thresh from the channel of the River to the Wadi of Egypt, and you will be gathered one by one, Bnei-Yisrael.
13It will also come about in that day, a great shofar will be blown. Those perishing in the land of Assyria and the exiles in the land of Egypt will come and worship Adonai on the holy mountain in Jerusalem.
