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?

The Mountain of Yahweh
1The word that Isaiah son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem:
2And it shall happen in the future of the days
the mountain of the house#Or “temple” of Yahweh shall be established;
it will be among the highest#Literally “head” of the mountains,
and it shall be raised from the hills.
All of the nations shall travel to him;
3many peoples shall come.
And they shall say,
“Come, let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh,
to the house#Or “temple” of the God of Jacob,
and may he teach us part of his ways,
and let us walk in his paths.”
For instruction shall go out from Zion,
and the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem.
4He shall judge between the nations
and he shall arbitrate for many peoples.
They shall beat their swords into ploughshares
and their spears into pruning hooks.
A nation shall not lift up a sword against a nation,
and they shall not learn war again.
The Day of Yahweh
5House of Jacob, come and let us walk in the light of Yahweh.
6For you have forsaken your people, house of Jacob,
because they are full#Possibly “of diviners” was part of the original text here from the east,
and of soothsayers like the Philistines,
and they make alliances#Literally “they clap hands” with the offspring of foreigners.
7And its land is filled with silver and gold,
and there is no end to its treasures;
and its land is filled with horses,
and there is no end to its chariots.
8Its land is filled with idols;
they bow down to the work of their#Hebrew “his” hands,
to what they made with their#Hebrew “his” fingers.
9So humanity is humbled;
everyone is humbled,
and you must not forgive them.
10Enter into the rock
and hide yourself in the dust
from the presence of the terror of Yahweh
and from the glory of his majesty.
11The haughty eyes#Literally “eyes of the haughtiness” of humanity will#The Hebrew is singular be brought low,
and the pride of everyone will be humbled,
and Yahweh alone will be exalted on that day.
12For there is a day for Yahweh of hosts
against all of the proud and the lofty
and against all that is lifted up and humble,#Or “it will be humbled”
13and against all the lofty and lifted up cedars of Lebanon,
and against all the large trees of Bashan,
14and against all the high mountains,
and against all the lofty hills,
15and against every kind of high tower,
and against every kind of fortified wall,
16and against all the ships of Tarshish,
and against all the ships of desire.
17And the haughtiness of the people shall be humbled,
and the pride of everyone shall be brought low,
and Yahweh alone will be exalted on that day.
18And the idols shall pass away entirely,
19and they will enter into the caves of the rocks
and into the holes of the ground
from the presence of the terror of Yahweh
and from the glory of his majesty
when he rises#Literally “in his rising” to terrify the earth.
20On that day humanity will throw away its idols of silver
and its idols of gold,
which they made for it to worship,
to the rodents#Or “moles” and to the bats—
21to enter into the crevices of the rocks
and into the clefts of the crags
from the presence of the terror of Yahweh
and from the glory of his majesty,
when he rises#Literally “in his rising” to terrify the earth.
22Turn away from humanity,
who has breath in its nostrils,#Hebrew “nostril”
for by#Or “in” what is it esteemed?
