Amplified Bible

Isaiah 27

The Deliverance of Israel

1In that day the Lord will punish Leviathan the fleeing serpent
With His fierce and great and mighty sword [rescuing Israel from her enemy],
Even Leviathan the twisted serpent;
And He will kill the dragon who lives in the sea.


In that day [it will be said of the redeemed nation of Israel],
“A vineyard of [a]wine, sing in praise of it!

“I, the Lord, am its Keeper;
I water it every moment.
So that no one will harm it,
I guard it night and day.

“I have no wrath.
Should anyone give Me briars and thorns in battle,
I would step on them, I would set them all on fire.

“Or let him (Israel) cling to My strength and rely on My protection [My stronghold],
Let him make peace with Me,
Let him make peace with Me.”

[b]In the generations to come Jacob will take root;
Israel will blossom and sprout,
And they will fill the surface of the world with fruit.


Like the striking [c]by Him who has struck them, has He struck them?
Or like the slaughter of His slain, have they been slain?

You contended with them by exile, by driving them away [from Canaan];
He has expelled them with His fierce wind on the day of the east wind.

Therefore through this the wickedness [the sin, the injustice, the wrongdoing] of Jacob (Israel) will be atoned for and forgiven;
And this will be [d]the full price [that God requires] for taking away his sin:
When Israel makes all the stones of the [pagan] altars like crushed chalk stones;
When the Asherim and the incense altars will not stand.
10 
For the fortified city is isolated,
A settlement deserted and abandoned like the desert;
There the calf will graze,
And there it will lie down and [e]feed on its branches.
11 
When its branches are dry, they are broken off;
The women come and [f]make a fire with them.
For they are not a people of understanding,
Therefore He who made them will not have compassion on them,
And He who created them will not be gracious to them.

12 In that day the Lord will thresh [out His grain] from the flowing stream of the River [Euphrates] to the Brook of Egypt, and you will be gathered up one by one, O sons of Israel. 13 It will come to pass in that day that a great trumpet will be blown, and those who were lost and perishing in the land of Assyria and who were scattered in the land of Egypt will come and worship the Lord on the holy mountain at Jerusalem.

以賽亞書 27

以色列必蒙拯救

1到那日,耶和華必用祂無堅不摧的利劍懲罰巨龍——那飛快、曲行的蛇。祂必殺死那海中的怪物。

到那日,耶和華說:
「你們要歌頌那佳美的葡萄園。
我耶和華是看守它的,
我勤加澆灌,
晝夜守護,
不讓人毀壞。
我不再向它發怒。
若是發現荊棘和蒺藜,
我就對付它們,
把它們燒光。
除非它們尋求我的庇護,
與我和好,
與我和好。」

有一天,雅各必扎根生長,
以色列必發芽開花,
果實遍地。
耶和華不像擊打以色列的敵人那樣擊打以色列人。
祂不像擊殺以色列的敵人那樣擊殺以色列人。
祂與以色列人為敵,
使他們被擄,
驅逐他們離開本地,
用從東方颳來的暴風吹散他們。
藉此,雅各家的罪惡必得到赦免,
他們罪惡被除掉後所結的果實是:
打碎假神祭壇的石頭,
推倒亞舍拉神像和香壇。
10 堅城荒涼,被人遺棄,
如同曠野。
牛犢在那裡吃草、躺臥,
吃光樹枝上的葉子。
11 樹枝枯乾斷落,
婦女拿去作柴燒。
因為以色列人愚昧無知,
所以他們的創造主不憐憫他們,
也不向他們施恩。

12 到那日,耶和華必把以色列人從幼發拉底河到埃及小河一個一個地召集起來,像人打樹拾果子一樣。 13 到那日,號角吹響後,亞述地將要滅亡的以色列人和流散到埃及的以色列人,都必來到耶路撒冷的聖山敬拜耶和華。
