The wolf shall also dwell with the lamb definition


From the Book of Isaiah; this saying is part of a description of an Earthly paradise that will follow the restoration of Israel after its destruction in a series of wars. The full text reads: “The wolf shall also dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.” The reference to a “little child” is sometimes thought to be a prophecy of Jesus' birth.
