Isaiah 61:5

Isaiah 61:5

And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.

a. NLT: Foreigners will be your servants. They will feed your flocks and plow your fields
and tend your vineyards.

b. NIV: Strangers will shepherd your flocks; foreigners will work your fields and vineyards.

c. YLT: And strangers have stood and fed your flock, Sons of a foreigner areyour husbandmen, And your vine-dressers.

d. Amplified Bible: Strangers will stand and feed your flocks,
And foreigners will be your farmers and your vinedressers.

e. Septuagint: And strangers shall come and feed thy flocks, and aliens [shall be thy] ploughmen and vine-dressers. 

f. Stone Edition Torah/Prophets/Writings: Foreigners will stand and tend your flocks and the sons of the stranger will be your plaomen and your vineyard workers.

1. And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks

a. strangers [2114 * zuwr] [Strong: a primitive root; to turn aside (especially for lodging); hence to be a foreigner, strange, profane; specifically (active participle) to commit adultery:--(come from) another (man, place), fanner, go away, (e-)strange(-r, thing, woman).]

c. and feed [7462 * ra`ah] [Strong: a primitive root; to tend a flock; i.e. pasture it; intransitively, to graze (literally or figuratively); generally to rule; by extension, to associate with (as a friend):--X break, companion, keep company with, devour, eat up, evil entreat, feed, use as a friend, make friendship with, herdman, keep (sheep)(-er), pastor, + shearing house, shepherd, wander, waste.]

2. “…and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.”

a. the sons [1121 * ben] [Strong: from 1129; a son (as a builder of the family name), in the widest sense (of literal and figurative relationship, including grandson, subject, nation, quality or condition, etc., (like 1, 251, etc.)):--+ afflicted, age, (Ahoh-) (Ammon-) (Hachmon-) (Lev-)ite, (anoint-)ed one, appointed to, (+) arrow, (Assyr-) (Babylon-) (Egypt-) (Grec-)ian, one born, bough, branch, breed, + (young) bullock, + (young) calf, X came up in, child, colt, X common, X corn, daughter, X of first, + firstborn, foal, + very fruitful, + postage, X in, + kid, + lamb, (+) man, meet, + mighty, + nephew, old, (+) people, + rebel, + robber, X servant born, X soldier, son, + spark, + steward, + stranger, X surely, them of, + tumultuous one, + valiant(-est), whelp, worthy, young (one), youth.]

d. and your vinedressers [3755 * korem ko-rame' active participle of an imaginary denominative from 3754; a vinedresser:--vine dresser (as one or two words).]

1). Given that the first coming of Christ and the church age concern the first half of Isaiah 61:1, 2 up to the phrase, “to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD”, and the rest of the passage of Isaiah 61:2, 3 from “the day of vengeance of our God through the end of Isaiah 61:3; we can believe with a certain amount of confidence that some of the passages following are speaking of the events immediately after the second coming of Christ. Especially those whose message speak of things that not only haven’t occurred yet but contains things that could only speak of Christ’s kingdom.
