In that day!
1 In that day,
the LORD will punish with his sword,
his fierce, great and powerful sword,
Leviathan the gliding serpent,
Leviathan the coiling serpent;
he will slay the monster of the sea.
2 In that day—
“Sing about a fruitful vineyard:
3 I, the LORD, watch over it;
I water it continually.
I guard it day and night
so that no one may harm it.
“In that day” sounds like it will be a glorious day! We see the destruction of evil and protection forever.
I see a picture of a kid in a garden that loves to play but has this fear in the back of his head that a serpent lurks in the tall grass. And “that day” is the day, the father comes out and kills the serpent and says everything is going to be ok. There is no more reason to fear and the garden will be made beautiful. There’s finally security!
