This is what Yesha`yahu the son of Amotz saw concerning Yehudah and Yerushalayim.
It shall happen in the latter days, that the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established on the top of the mountains, And shall be raised above the hills; And all nations shall flow to it.
Many peoples shall go and say, "Come, let's go up to the mountain of the LORD, To the house of the God of Ya`akov; And he will teach us of his ways, And we will walk in his paths. For out of Tziyon the law shall go forth, And the word of the LORD from Yerushalayim.
He will judge between the nations, And will decide concerning 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.
House of Ya`akov, come, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.
For you have forsaken your people, the house of Ya`akov, Because they are filled from the east, With those who practice divination like the Pelishtim, And they clasp hands with the children of foreigners.
Their land is full of silver and gold, Neither is there any end of their treasures. Their land also is full of horses, Neither is there any end of their chariots.
Their land also is full of idols. They worship the work of their own hands, That which their own fingers have made.
Man is brought low, And mankind is humbled; Therefore don't forgive them.
Enter into the rock, And hide in the dust, From before the terror of the LORD, And from the glory of his majesty.
The lofty looks of man will be brought low, The haughtiness of men will be bowed down, And the LORD alone will be exalted in that day.
For there will be a day of the LORD of Hosts for all that is proud and haughty, And for all that is lifted up; And it shall be brought low:
For all the cedars of Levanon, that are high and lifted up, For all the oaks of Bashan,
For all the high mountains, For all the hills that are lifted up,
For every lofty tower, For every fortified wall,
For all the ships of Tarshish, And for all pleasant imagery.
The loftiness of man shall be bowed down, And the haughtiness of men shall be brought low; And the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.
The idols shall utterly pass away.
Men shall go into the caves of the rocks, And into the holes of the eretz, From before the terror of the LORD, And from the glory of his majesty, When he arises to shake the eretz mightily.
In that day, men shall cast away their idols of silver, And their idols of gold, Which have been made for themselves to worship, To the moles and to the bats;
To go into the caverns of the rocks, And into the clefts of the ragged rocks, From before the terror of the LORD, And from the glory of his majesty, When he arises to shake the eretz mightily.
Stop trusting in man, whose breath is in his nostrils; For of what account is he?
