And the wolf shall dwell with the lamb,
And the leopard shall lie down with the kid;
And the calf and the young lion and the lamb will be together;
And a little child shall lead them.
And the cow and the bear shall feed together;
Their young ones shall lie down together;
And the lion shall eat straw like the ox....
No one will hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain....
Isaiah 11:6-9
