And he (Moshiach) will judge between the nations (to resolve their conflicts) and rebuke great races and they will break their swords to tools for ground work and their spears for plowshears, a nation will not raise to another nation the sword and they will no longer learn the art of war. And man will sit beneath his vineyard and his fig tree and no one will frighten him for Hashem has spoken...
