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

Everlasting Peace
(Mic 4.1–3)
1This is the message which God gave to Isaiah son of Amoz about Judah and Jerusalem:
2In days to come
the mountain where the Temple stands
will be the highest one of all,
towering above all the hills.
Many nations will come streaming to it,
3and their people will say,
“Let us go up the hill of the LORD,#2.3 hill of the LORD: Mount Zion, the hill in Jerusalem on which the Temple was built.
to the Temple of Israel's God.
He will teach us what he wants us to do;
we will walk in the paths he has chosen.
For the LORD's teaching comes from Jerusalem;
from Zion he speaks to his people.”
4 # Joel 3.10 He will settle disputes among great nations.
They will hammer their swords into ploughs
and their spears into pruning knives.
Nations will never again go to war,
never prepare for battle again.
5Now, descendants of Jacob, let us walk in the light which the LORD gives us!
Arrogance will be Destroyed
6O God, you have forsaken your people, the descendants of Jacob! The land is full of magic practices from the east and from Philistia.#2.6 Probable text The land… Philistia; Hebrew unclear. The people follow foreign customs. 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, and they worship objects that they have made with their own hands.
9Everyone will be humiliated and disgraced. Do not forgive them, LORD!
10 # Rev 6.15; 2 Thes 1.9 They will hide in caves in the rocky hills or dig holes in the ground to try to escape from the LORD's anger and to hide from his power and glory! 11A day is coming when human pride will be ended and human arrogance destroyed. Then the LORD alone will be exalted. 12On that day the LORD Almighty will humble everyone who is powerful, everyone who is proud and conceited. 13He will destroy the tall cedars of Lebanon and all the oaks in the land of Bashan. 14He will level the high mountains and hills, 15every high tower, and the walls of every fortress. 16He will sink even the largest and most beautiful ships. 17-18Human pride will be ended, and human arrogance will be destroyed. Idols will completely disappear, and the LORD alone will be exalted on that day.
19People will hide in caves in the rocky hills or dig holes in the ground to try to escape from the LORD's anger and to hide from his power and glory, when he comes to shake the earth. 20When that day comes, they will throw away the gold and silver idols they have made, and abandon them to the moles and the bats. 21When the LORD comes to shake the earth, people will hide in holes and caves in the rocky hills to try to escape from his anger and to hide from his power and glory.
22Put no more confidence in mortals. What are they worth?
