Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 The thing that Isaiah son of Amoz hath seen concerning Judah and Jerusalem: 1 This is what Isaiah son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem:
2 And it hath come to pass, In the latter end of the days, Established is the mount of Jehovah's house, Above the top of the mounts, And it hath been lifted up above the heights, And flowed unto it have all the nations. 2 In the last days the mountain of the LORD's temple will be established as chief among the mountains; it will be raised above the hills, and all nations will stream to it.
3 And gone have many peoples and said, `Come, and we go up unto the mount of Jehovah, Unto the house of the God of Jacob, And He doth teach us of His ways, And we walk in His paths, For from Zion goeth forth a law, And a word of Jehovah from Jerusalem. 3 Many peoples will come and say, "Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths." The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
4 And He hath judged between the nations, And hath given a decision to many peoples, And they have beat their swords to ploughshares, And their spears to pruning-hooks, Nation doth not lift up sword unto nation, Nor do they learn any more -- war. 4 He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.
5 O house of Jacob, come, And we walk in the light of Jehovah.' 5 Come, O house of Jacob, let us walk in the light of the LORD.
6 For Thou hast left Thy people, the house of Jacob. For they have been filled from the east, And [are] sorcerers like the Philistines, And with the children of strangers strike hands. 6 You have abandoned your people, the house of Jacob. They are full of superstitions from the East; they practice divination like the Philistines and clasp hands with pagans.
7 And its land is full of silver and gold, And there is no end to its treasures, And its land is full of horses, And there is no end to its chariots, 7 Their land is full of silver and gold; there is no end to their treasures. Their land is full of horses; there is no end to their chariots.
8 And its land is full of idols, To the work of its hands it boweth itself, To that which its fingers have made, 8 Their land is full of idols; they bow down to the work of their hands, to what their fingers have made.
9 And the low boweth down, and the high is humbled, And Thou acceptest them not. 9 So man will be brought low and mankind humbled-- do not forgive them.
10 Enter into a rock, and be hidden in dust, Because of the fear of Jehovah, And because of the honour of His excellency. 10 Go into the rocks, hide in the ground from dread of the LORD and the splendor of his majesty!
11 The haughty eyes of man have been humbled, And bowed down hath been the loftiness of men, And set on high hath Jehovah alone been in that day. 11 The eyes of the arrogant man will be humbled and the pride of men brought low; the LORD alone will be exalted in that day.
12 For a day [is] to Jehovah of Hosts, For every proud and high one, And for every lifted up and low one, 12 The LORD Almighty has a day in store for all the proud and lofty, for all that is exalted (and they will be humbled),
13 And for all cedars of Lebanon, The high and the exalted ones, And for all oaks of Bashan, 13 for all the cedars of Lebanon, tall and lofty, and all the oaks of Bashan,
14 And for all the high mountains, And for all the exalted heights, 14 for all the towering mountains and all the high hills,
15 And for every high tower, And for every fenced wall, 15 for every lofty tower and every fortified wall,
16 And for all ships of Tarshish, And for all desirable pictures. 16 for every trading ship and every stately vessel.
17 And bowed down hath been the haughtiness of man, And humbled the loftiness of men, And set on high hath Jehovah alone been in that day. 17 The arrogance of man will be brought low and the pride of men humbled; the LORD alone will be exalted in that day,
18 And the idols -- they completely pass away. 18 and the idols will totally disappear.
19 And [men] have entered into caverns of rocks, And into caves of dust, Because of the fear of Jehovah, And because of the honour of His excellency, In His rising to terrify the earth. 19 Men will flee to caves in the rocks and to holes in the ground from dread of the LORD and the splendor of his majesty, when he rises to shake the earth.
20 In that day doth man cast his idols of silver, And his idols of gold, That they have made for him to worship, To moles, and to bats, 20 In that day men will throw away to the rodents and bats their idols of silver and idols of gold, which they made to worship.
21 To enter into cavities of the rocks, And into clefts of the high places, Because of the fear of Jehovah, And because of the honour of His excellency, In His rising to terrify the earth. 21 They will flee to caverns in the rocks and to the overhanging crags from dread of the LORD and the splendor of his majesty, when he rises to shake the earth.
22 Cease for you from man, Whose breath [is] in his nostrils, For -- in what is he esteemed? 22 Stop trusting in man, who has but a breath in his nostrils. Of what account is he?
