Israel Will Be Gathered in the Last Days (27:1–13)


27 1In that day the LORD will punish—
with His hard, great, and strong sword—

Leviathan, a fleeing serpent,
Leviathan, a coiling serpent, and He will slay the monster that is in the sea.

2In that day, delightful vineyard, sing to it!

The Lord

3I, the LORD, am its keeper;
moment by moment I water it.

I keep it night and day so that no harm comes to it.
4I have no wrath.

Who will give Me thorns and briars?
I will march against them in battle;
I will burn them up together;

5but if they lay hold of My strength,
he will make peace with Me;
peace he will make with Me.


6In days to come, Jacob will take root;
Israel will blossom and flower,
and they will fill the face of the world with fruit.

7Has He smote {Israel} as He smote those who smote {Israel}?
Or has {Israel} been slain as its slayers were slain?

8By exact measure, by sending {Israel} away, You contended with it.
He removed it with His hard wind, in the day of the east wind.

9Therefore by this will the iniquity of Jacob be atoned for,
and this will be the full fruit of the removal of his sin;

when He makes all the stones of the altar, like chalkstones crushed to pieces,
no Asherim or incense altars will remain standing.

10For a fortified city is solitary,
a deserted and forsaken habitation, like the wilderness;

a calf grazes there, and there it lies down
and consumes its branches.

11When its branches are dry, they are broken.
Women come, light fires with them.

For they are a people without understanding;

therefore, their Maker will not have compassion on them;
their Fashioner will show them no favor.

12And in that day, the LORD will thresh out the grain from the river to the wadi of Egypt,
and you will be gathered one by one, O people of Israel.

13And in that day a great ram’s horn will be blown,
and those lost in the land of Assyria
and those scattered in the land of Egypt will come,

and they will worship the LORD
on the holy mountain, in Jerusalem.
