Their land also is full of silver and gold
Procured by pardons, indulgences, masses, praying souls out of purgatory, tithes, annates, Peter's pence

neither [is there any] end of their treasures;
laid up in the pope's coffers, in their churches, monasteries, and convents:

their land is also full of horses, neither [is there any] end of
their chariots;
for the cardinals, archbishops, bishops to ride on and in. Horses and chariots are mentioned among the wares and merchandise of Rome, in ( Revelation 18:13 ) .

Isaiah 2:7 In-Context

5 O house of Jacob, come, let us walk in the light of the Lord!
6 For you have forsaken the ways of your people, O house of Jacob. Indeed they are full of diviners from the east and of soothsayers like the Philistines, and they clasp hands with foreigners.
7 Their land is filled with silver and gold, and there is no end to their treasures; their land is filled with horses, and there is no end to their chariots.
8 Their land is filled with idols; they bow down to the work of their hands, to what their own fingers have made.
9 And so people are humbled, and everyone is brought low— do not forgive them!
