Isaiah 2:1-11

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.
