Isaiah 11:8–9; Isaiah 35:9; Isaiah 65:25; Ezekiel 34:25; Hosea 2:18

The nursing child shall play over the hole of the cobra,

and the weaned child shall put his hand on the adder's den.

uThey shall not hurt or destroy

in all vmy holy mountain;

wfor the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord

as the waters cover the sea.


No lion shall be there,

nor shall any ravenous beast come up on it;

they shall not be found there,

but the redeemed shall walk there.


25  xThe wolf and the lamb shall graze together;

the lion shall eat straw like the ox,

and ydust shall be the serpent's food.

zThey shall not hurt or destroy

in all my holy mountain,

says the Lord.


The Lord's Covenant of Peace

25 sI will make with them a covenant of peace and tbanish wild beasts from the land, uso that they may dwell securely in the wilderness and sleep in the woods.


18 And jI will make for them a covenant on that day with the beasts of the field, the birds of the heavens, and the creeping things of the ground. And kI will abolish1 the bow, the sword, and war from the land, and I will make you lie down in lsafety.
