Isaiah 2

God's Universal Reign

2 Now it will come about that 2In the last days The 3mountain of the house of the LORD Will be established as the chief of the mountains, And will be raised above the hills; And 4all the nations will stream to it.
3 And 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; That He may teach us concerning His ways And that we may walk in His paths." For the law will go forth 5from Zion And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
4 And He will judge between the nations, And will render decisions for many peoples; And 6they will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. 7Nation will not lift up sword against nation, And never again will they learn war.
5 Come, 8house of Jacob, and let us walk in the 9light of the LORD.
6 For You have 10abandoned Your people, the house of Jacob, Because they are filled with influences from the east, And they are soothsayers 11like the Philistines, And they 12strike bargains with the children of foreigners.
7 Their land has also been filled with silver and gold And there is no end to their treasures; Their land has also been filled with 13horses And there is no end to their chariots.
8 Their land has also been 14filled with idols; They worship the 15work of their hands, That which their fingers have made.
9 So 16the common man has been humbled And the man of importance has been abased, But 17do not forgive them.
10 18Enter the rock and hide in the dust 19From the terror of the LORD and from the splendor of His majesty.
11 The 20proud look of man will be abased And the 21loftiness of man will be humbled, And the LORD alone will be exalted in that day.

A Day of Reckoning Coming

12 For the LORD of hosts will have a day of reckoning Against 22everyone who is proud and lofty And against everyone who is lifted up, That he may be abased.
13 And it will be against all the cedars of Lebanon that are lofty and lifted up, Against all the 23oaks of Bashan,
14 Against all the 24lofty mountains, Against all the hills that are lifted up,
17 The pride of man will be humbled And the loftiness of men will be abased; And the LORD alone will be exalted in that day,
18 But the 27idols will completely vanish.
19 Men will 28go into caves of the rocks And into holes of the ground Before * the terror of the LORD And the splendor of His majesty, When He arises 29to make the earth tremble.
20 In that day men will 30cast away to the moles and the 31bats Their idols of silver and their idols of gold, Which they made for themselves to worship,
21 In order to 32go into the caverns of the rocks and the clefts of the cliffs Before * the terror of the LORD and the splendor of His majesty, When He arises to make the earth tremble.
22 33Stop regarding * man, whose breath of life is in his nostrils; For 34why should he be esteemed?
