1In that day יהוה with His severe sword, great and strong, punishes Liwiathan the fleeing serpent, Liwiathan that twisted serpent. And He shall kill the monster that is in the sea.
2In that day sing to her, “A vineyard of red wine!
3“I, יהוה, do guard it, I water it every moment; lest any hurt it, I guard it night and day.
4“Wrath is not in Me. Who would set thornbushes and weeds against Me in battle? I would go through them, I would burn them together.
5“Or let him take hold of My strength and make peace with Me. Let him make peace with Me!”
6Those who come He causes to take root in Ya‛aqoḇ, Yisra’ĕl shall blossom and bud. And they shall fill the face of the world with fruit.
7Has He smitten him as he struck the ones who were striking him? Or as a killer – was he killed as he was killing?
8In measure, by sending her away, You contended with her. He shall take away by His rough wind in the day of the east wind.
9Therefore by this the crookedness of Ya‛aqoḇ is covered. And this is all the fruit of taking away his sin: when he makes all the stones of the slaughter-place like chalkstones that are beaten to dust – Ashĕrim and sun-pillars rise no more.
10For the city of defence is lonely, a home forsaken and left like a wilderness – there the calf feeds, and there it lies down, and shall consume its branches.
11When its twigs are dry, they are broken off, women come and set them on fire. For it is a people of no understanding, therefore He who made them has no compassion on them, and He who formed them shows them no favour.
12And in that day it shall be that יהוה threshes, from the channel of the River to the wadi of Mitsrayim. And you shall be gathered one by one,#See Jer. 3:14, 15 O children of Yisra’ĕl.
13And in that day it shall be that a great shophar is blown, and those who were perishing in the land of Ashshur and the outcasts in the land of Mitsrayim shall come, and shall worship יהוה on the set-apart mountain, in Yerushalayim.
