Threshing season will extend for you until the season for harvesting grapes,[a] and the season for harvesting grapes will extend until sowing season, so[b] you will eat your bread until you are satisfied,[c] and you will live securely in your land. I will grant peace in the land so that[d] you will lie down to sleep without anyone terrifying you.[e] I will remove harmful animals[f] from the land, and no sword of war[g] will pass through your land. You will pursue your enemies and they will fall before you by the sword.[h]
