Isaiah 2

2
II
1THE WORD WHICH WAS REVEALED UNTO ISAIAH, THE SON OF AMOZ, CONCERNING JUDAH AND JERUSALEM.
2It shall come to pass in the last days,
That the mountain of the house of Jehovah shall be established on the top of the mountains;
And it shall be exalted above the hills:
And all the nations shall flow unto it.
3And many people shall go, and say;
Come on, and let us go up to the mountain of Jehovah;
To the house of the God of Jacob:
And he will teach us of his ways;
And we will walk in his paths:
For from Zion shall go forth the law;
And the word of Jehovah from Jerusalem.
4And he shall judge among the nations,
And give sentence to many people:
And they shall beat their swords into ploughshares,
And their spears into pruning-hooks:
Nation shall not lift up sword against nation;
Neither shall they learn war any more.
5O house of Jacob, come ye,
And let us walk in the light of Jehovah.
6Therefore thou hast abandoned thy people, the house of Jacob,
Because they are full of the East,
And are soothsayers like the Philistines;
And they join hand in hand with the children of strangers.
7Their land is full of silver and gold;
And there is no end to their treasures:
Their land is full of horses:
And there is no end to their chariots.
8Their land is full of idols;
Before the work of their own hands do they prostrate themselves;
Before that which their own fingers have made.
9Wherefore the mean man is bowed down, and the great man is humbled;
And thou wilt not forgive them.
10Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust;
For fear of Jehovah, and for the glory of his majesty.
11The lofty looks of man shall be humbled,
And the haughtiness of mortals shall be bowed down:
And Jehovah alone shall be exalted in that day.
12For there is unto Jehovah of hosts a day against every thing proud and lofty;
And against every thing exalted, that it shall be humbled.
13Even against all the cedars of Lebanon, the high and the exalted;
And against all the oaks of Bashan:
14And against all the high mountains,
And against all the exalted hills:
15And against every high raised tower;
And against every fenced wall.
16And against all the ships of Tarshish;
And against every desirable work of art.
17And the pride of man shall be bowed down,
And the haughtiness of mortals shall be humbled;
And Jehovah alone shall be exalted in that day.
18And the idols shall be utterly destroyed.
19And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth;
For fear of Jehovah, and for the glory of his majesty,
When he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.
20In that day shall men cast away their idols of silver,
And their idols of gold, which they had made for themselves to worship,
To the moles and to the bats:
21To go into the caves of the rocks, and into the clefts of the craggy rocks:
For fear of Jehovah, and for the glory of his majesty,
When he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.
22Cease ye from trust in man, whose breath is in his nostrils;
For wherein is he of any account?

Isaiah 2

2
1The word which Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
2 # Mic 4.1-3. It shall come to pass in the latter days
that the mountain of the house of the Lord
shall be established as the highest of the mountains,
and shall be raised above the hills;
and all the nations shall flow to it,
3and many peoples shall come, and say:
“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
to the house of the God of Jacob;
that he may teach us his ways
and that we may walk in his paths.”
For out of Zion shall go forth the law,
and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
4He shall judge between the nations,
and shall decide for many peoples;
and they shall beat their swords into plowshares,
and their spears into pruning hooks;
nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war any more.
5O house of Jacob,
come, let us walk
in the light of the Lord.
6For thou hast rejected thy people,
the house of Jacob,
because they are full of diviners#2.6 Cn: Heb lacks of diviners from the east
and of soothsayers like the Philistines,
and they strike hands with foreigners.
7Their land is filled with silver and gold,
and there is no end to their treasures;
their land is filled with horses,
and there is no end to their chariots.
8Their land is filled with idols;
they bow down to the work of their hands,
to what their own fingers have made.
9So man is humbled,
and men are brought low—
forgive them not!
10Enter into the rock,
and hide in the dust
from before the terror of the Lord,
and from the glory of his majesty.
11The haughty looks of man shall be brought low,
and the pride of men shall be humbled;
and the Lord alone will be exalted in that day.
12For the Lord of hosts has a day
against all that is proud and lofty,
against all that is lifted up and high;#2.12 Cn Compare Gk: Heb low
13against all the cedars of Lebanon,
lofty and lifted up;
and against all the oaks of Bashan;
14against all the high mountains,
and against all the lofty hills;
15against every high tower,
and against every fortified wall;
16against all the ships of Tarshish,
and against all the beautiful craft.
17And the haughtiness of man shall be humbled,
and the pride of men shall be brought low;
and the Lord alone will be exalted in that day.
18And the idols shall utterly pass away.
19And men shall enter the caves of the rocks
and the holes of the ground,
from before the terror of the Lord,
and from the glory of his majesty,
when he rises to terrify the earth.
20In that day men will cast forth
their idols of silver and their idols of gold,
which they made for themselves to worship,
to the moles and to the bats,
21to enter the caverns of the rocks
and the clefts of the cliffs,
from before the terror of the Lord,
and from the glory of his majesty,
when he rises to terrify the earth.
22Turn away from man
in whose nostrils is breath,
for of what account is he?
