THE BOOK OF THE PROPHET
Isaiah 27 ©
The destruction of the enemies of God’s church, v. 1. And that He would protect and bless His people, 2, etc. When they would cease from sinning, 9. Hereunto the prophet adds a threatening, concerning the destruction of Jerusalem, 10. And the return of some Jews from the lands into which they were dispersed, 13.
IN 1that day the LORD 2with his sore and great and strong sword shall 3punish 4leviathan the 5piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the 6dragon that is in the sea.
In that day 7sing ye unto her, 8A vineyard of red wine.
I the LORD do keep it; I will water it every moment: lest any 9hurt it, I will keep it night and day.
10Fury is not in me: who would set the briers and thorns against me in battle? I would go 11through them, I would burn them together.
12Or let him 13take hold of my strength, that he may make peace with me; and he shall make peace with me.
14He shall cause them that come of 15Jacob to take root: Israela shall blossom and bud, and 16fill the face of the world with 17fruit.
¶Hath 18he smitten 19him, 20as he smote 21those that smote him? or is 22he slain according to the 23slaughter of them that are slain by him?
24Inb measure, when 25it shooteth forth, 26thou wilt debate 27with it: 28he stayeth his rough wind in the day 29of the east wind.
