The wolf will dwell with the lamb, and the leopard will lie down with the kid; the calf, the lion and the ox together, and a small child will lead them.
The Radak presents two ways this verse can be understood. The first is literally, that in the Messianic era G-d will change the nature of carnivorous animals so that they become herbivores. There is actually precedent for this from the time of Noah. After all, what did the lions and wolves eat during their year on the ark? Certainly not the goats and the sheep! Rather, G-d temporarily suspended their carnivorous nature for the duration and He can do so again in Messianic times. The second understanding – preferred by the Radak – is that this verse is a metaphor. The lion, wolf and leopard refer to evil people who prey on the innocent, while the lamb and kid are humble people. In Messianic times, people will not mistreat or take advantage of one another. Animals will continue to be carnivorous - except in Israel, since Leviticus 26:6 says that there will be no dangerous animals in Israel in the Messianic era.
Riky Rothenberg was born in Kfar Saba Israel and studied painting at the Renamin School of Art in Tel Aiv. Rothenberg studied the Cajamarca painting technique during a long stay in Peru, where she was a pupil of the famous Indian artist Dona Rosa. Rothenberg is a mother of five and lives and works outside of Jerusalem. her work is represented in many private and public collections in Israel, the United States, and South America.
Her work...The artist, a passionate student of Kabbalah, expresses in images the knowledge in which faith meets poetry and philosophy allies with prophecy. The leitmotif of Rothenberg's work is the unique spirituality of Jerusalem, and its hallmark, an ecstatic atmosphere of glory and splendor, sorrow and hope, yearning and achievement, awe and joy. Rothenberg's body of work is the mystical quest. Jerusalem is a famous city filled with spirituality. In a flamboyant, polychromatic style, marshalling a multi-evocative set of religious symbols Rothenberg's paintings convey a durable message of love for God and faith in human destiny.
