Isaiah 2 (Lexham English Bible)

View In My Bible

The Mountain of Yahweh

1 The word that Isaiah son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem: 2 And it shall happen in the future of the days the mountain of the housea of Yahweh [shall] be established; it will be among the highestb of the mountains, and it shall be raised from [the] hills. All [of] the nations shall travel to him; 3 many peoples shall come. And they shall say, "Come, let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh, to the housec 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. 4 He 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

5 House of Jacob, come and let us walk in the light of Yahweh. 6 For you have forsaken your people, house of Jacob, because they are fulld from [the] east, and [of] soothsayers like the Philistines, and {they make alliances}e with the offspring of foreigners. 7 And 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. 8 Its land is filled [with] idols; they bow down to the work of theirf hands, to what they made [with] theirg fingers. 9 So humanity is humbled; everyone is humbled, and you must not forgive them. 10 Enter into the rock and hide yourself in the dust from the presence of the terror of Yahweh and from the glory of his majesty. 11 The {haughty eyes}h of humanity willi be brought low, and the pride of everyone will be humbled, and Yahweh alone will be exalted on that day. 12 For [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,j 13 and against all the lofty and lifted up cedars of Lebanon, and against all the large trees of Bashan, 14 and against all the high mountains, and against all the lofty hills, 15 and against every kind of high tower, and against every kind of fortified wall, 16 and against all the ships of Tarshish, and against all the ships of desire. 17 And 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. 18 And the idols shall pass away entirely, 19 and 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}k to terrify the earth. 20 On that day humanity will throw away its idols of silver and its idols of gold, which they made for it to worship, to the rodentsl and to the bats-- 21 to 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}m to terrify the earth. 22 Turn away from humanity, who [has] breath in its nostrils,n for byo what [is] it esteemed?
