1 In that day will Jehovah,with his great and powerful sword,punish severelya Leviathan,the evasive maritime serpent,Leviathan, that devious sea monster,when he slays the dragons of the Sea.
2 In that day, sing of the earthbas of a delightful vineyard 3 of which I, Jehovah, am keeper.I water it constantly, watch over it night and day,lest anything be amiss. 4 I have no more anger toward her.Should briars and thorns come up,I will ruthlessly attack themand altogether set them ablaze. 5 But should they take hold of me for a refugeand make peace with me,they shall be reconciled to me. 6 For in days to come, when Jacob takes rootand Israel bursts into blossom,the face of the earth shall fill with fruit.
7 Was he smitten as were his smiters?Or was he slain as were they who slew him? 8 You have dealt with themby utterly banishing them, O Jehovah.By his fierce blasts they were flung awayin the day of the burning east wind.
9 But by this shall Jacob’s iniquity be expiated,as a result of this his sins removed:when he makes like crushed chalkstoneall altar stones,leaving no idols of prosperityand shining images standing. 10 Because of them the fortified cities lie forlorn,deserted habitations, forsaken like a wilderness;steers forage and recline there,stripping bare the young branches of trees. 11 A harvest of twigs dries, broken off by womenwho come to light their fires with them.They are not a discerning people.Therefore their Maker shows them no mercy;he who formed them favors them not.
12 In that day Jehovah will thresh out his harvest from the torrent of the River to the streams of Egypt. But you shall be gleaned one by one, O children of Israel.
13 In that day a loud trumpet shall sound, and they who were lost in the land of Assyria and they who were outcasts in the land of Egypt shall come and bow down to Jehovah in the holy mountain at Jerusalem.
