Whereas dragons dwelt afore, there shall grow sweet flowers and green rushes. 8 There shall be foot paths and common streets: this shall be called the holy way. No unclean person shall go through it, for the LORD himself shall go with them that way, and the ignorant shall not err. 9 There shall be no lion, and no ravishing beast shall come therein, nor be there, but men shall go there free and safe.
