The LORD’s mountain

1 This is what Isaiah, Amoz's son, saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. 2 In the days to come the mountain of the LORD's house will be the highest of the mountains. It will be lifted above the hills; peoples will stream to it. 3 Many nations will go and say, "Come, let's go up to the LORD's mountain, to the house of Jacob's God so that he may teach us his ways and we may walk in God's paths." Instruction will come from Zion; the LORD's word from Jerusalem. 4 God will judge between the nations, and settle disputes of mighty nations. Then they will beat their swords into iron plows and their spears into pruning tools. Nation will not take up sword against nation; they will no longer learn how to make war. 5 Come, house of Jacob, let's walk by the LORD's light.

Everyone is brought low

6 You have abandoned your people, house of Jacob. They are full of sorcerers from the east and fortune-tellers like the Philistines; they hold hands with foreigners' children.a 7 Their land is full of silver and gold; they have countless treasures. Their land is filled with horses; they have countless chariots. 8 Their land is filled with idols; they worship their handiwork, what their own fingers have made. 9 Humanity will be brought down; each person laid low—don't lift them up!b 10 Go into the rocks, and hide yourself in the dust from the terror of the LORD, from the splendor of God's majesty! 11 People's proud gazing will be stopped and humanity's arrogance brought down; the LORD alone will be exalted on that day.
