In the last days the mountain1 of the LORD's temple will be established as chief among the mountains; it will be raised above the hills,2 and peoples will stream to it.3
Many nations will come and say, "Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,4 to the house of the God of Jacob.5 He will teach us6 his ways,7 so that we may walk in his paths." The law8 will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
He will judge between many peoples and will settle disputes for strong nations far and wide.9 They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks.10 Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war11 anymore.12
Every man will sit under his own vine and under his own fig tree,13 and no one will make them afraid,14 for the LORD Almighty has spoken.15
All the nations may walk in the name of their gods;16 we will walk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever.17
"In that day," declares the LORD, "I will gather the lame;18 I will assemble the exiles19 and those I have brought to grief.20
I will make the lame a remnant,21 those driven away a strong nation.22 The LORD will rule over them in Mount Zion23 from that day and forever.24
As for you, O watchtower of the flock, O stronghold of the Daughter of Zion, the former dominion will be restored25 to you; kingship will come to the Daughter of Jerusalem.26"
