He will judge1 between the nations and will settle disputes2 for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks.3 Nation will not take up sword against nation,4 nor will they train for war anymore.
Come, O house of Jacob,5 let us walk in the light6 of the LORD.
You have abandoned7 your people, the house of Jacob.8 They are full of superstitions from the East; they practice divination9 like the Philistines10 and clasp hands11 with pagans.127
Their land is full of silver and gold;13 there is no end to their treasures.14 Their land is full of horses;15 there is no end to their chariots.168
Their land is full of idols;17 they bow down18 to the work of their hands,19 to what their fingers20 have made.
So man will be brought low21 and mankind humbled22-- do not forgive them.a2310
Go into the rocks, hide24 in the ground from dread of the LORD and the splendor of his majesty!2511
The eyes of the arrogant26 man will be humbled27 and the pride28 of men brought low;29 the LORD alone will be exalted30 in that day.3112
The LORD Almighty has a day32 in store for all the proud33 and lofty,34 for all that is exalted35 (and they will be humbled),3613
for all the cedars of Lebanon,37 tall and lofty,38 and all the oaks of Bashan,3914
for all the towering mountains and all the high hills,40
