And in that day will I make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven, and with the creeping things of the ground: and I will break the bow and the sword and the battle out of the earth, and will make them to lie down safely.
 

2:18 beasts of the field. When Israel is restored, God will also restore the primeval relationships among the animals (compare Isaiah 11:6-9; 65:25).

2:18 lie down safely. At the same time, world peace will be enforced by the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 2:2-4; Micah 5:1-5; Isaiah 9:6-7).
