The return to Jerusalem (Isa 27:12-27:13)

“On that day,                                                        

Yahweh will thresh out the grain.

O people of Israel!

You will be gathered

One by one,

From the channel of the Euphrates River

To the brooks of Egypt.

On that day,

A great trumpet will be blown.

Those who were lost

In the land of Assyria,

Those who were driven out

To the land of Egypt,

Will come.

They will worship Yahweh

On the holy mountain at Jerusalem.”

Isaiah has a return to Jerusalem after the exile. Yahweh will be the harvester. The people of Israel will be gathered one at a time from Babylon on the Euphrates River to the brooks of Egypt. On that day, the holy trumpet to call for a solemn convocation will sound. The lost in Assyria and Egypt will come home to worship Yahweh on the holy mountain in Jerusalem.
