Peaceful Latter Days

1 And it will come about in the 1last days That the 2mountain of the house of the LORD Will be established aas the chief of the mountains. It will be raised above the hills, And the 3peoples will stream to it. 2 4Many nations will come and say, "5Come and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD And to the house of the God of Jacob, That 6He may teach us about His ways And that we may walk in His paths." For 7from Zion will go forth the law, Even the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. 3 And He will 8judge between many peoples And render decisions for mighty, bdistant nations. Then they will hammer their swords 9into plowshares And their spears into pruning hooks ; Nation will not lift up sword against nation, And never again will they ctrain for war. 4 Each of them will 10sit under his vine And under his fig tree, With 11no one to make them afraid, For the 12mouth of the LORD of hosts has spoken. 5 Though all the peoples walk Each in the 13name of his god, As for us, 14we will walk In the name of the 15LORD our God forever and ever. 6 "In that day," declares the LORD, "I will assemble the 16lame And 17gather the outcasts, Even those whom I have afflicted. 7 "I will make the lame a 18remnant And the outcasts a strong nation, And the 19LORD will reign over them in Mount Zion From now on and forever . 8 "As for you, d20tower of the flock, eHill of the daughter of Zion, To you it will come - Even the 21former dominion will come, The kingdom of the daughter of Jerusalem. 9 "Now, why do you 22cry out loudly ? Is there no king among you, Or has your 23counselor perished, That agony has gripped you like a woman in childbirth ? 10 "24Writhe and labor to give birth, Daughter of Zion, Like a woman in childbirth ; For now you will 25go out of the city, Dwell in the field, And go to Babylon. 26There you will be rescued ; 27There the LORD will redeem you From the hand of your enemies. 11 "And now 28many nations have been assembled against you Who say, 'Let her be polluted, And let our eyes fgloat over Zion.' 12 "But they do not 29know the thoughts of the LORD, And they do not understand His purpose ; For He has gathered them like sheaves to the threshing floor. 13 "Arise and 30thresh, daughter of Zion, For your horn I will make iron And your hoofs I will make bronze, That you may 31pulverize many peoples, That you may 32devote to the LORD their unjust gain And their wealth to the Lord of all the earth.
