Isaiah 2

The Mountain of the  Lord

1The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.

2 aIt shall come to pass in the latter days
that bthe mountain of the house of the  Lord
shall be established as the highest of the mountains,
and shall be lifted up above the hills;
and call the nations shall flow to it,
3and dmany peoples shall 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 his ways
and that we may walk in his paths.”
For eout of Zion shall go the law
Or teaching

and the word of the  Lord from Jerusalem.
4He shall judge between the nations,
and shall decide disputes for many peoples;
gand they shall beat their swords into plowshares,
and their spears into pruning hooks;
hnation shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war anymore.
5 O house of Jacob,
come, let us walk
in ithe light of the  Lord.

The Day of the  Lord

6 For you have rejected your people,
the house of Jacob,
because they are full of things jfrom the east
and kof fortune-tellers llike the Philistines,
and they mstrike hands with the children of foreigners.
7Their land is nfilled with silver and gold,
and there is no end to their treasures;
their land is ofilled with horses,
and there is no end to their chariots.
8Their land is pfilled with idols;
they bow down to qthe work of their hands,
to what their own fingers have made.
9So man ris humbled,
and each one sis brought low
do not forgive them!
10 tEnter into the rock
and hide in the dust
ufrom before the terror of the  Lord,
and from the splendor of his majesty.
11 vThe haughty looks of man shall be brought low,
and the lofty pride of men shall be humbled,
and the  Lord alone will be exalted in that day.
12 wFor the  Lord of hosts has a day
against all that is proud and lofty,
against all that is lifted up—and it shall be brought low;
13against all the xcedars of Lebanon,
lofty and lifted up;
and against all the yoaks of Bashan;
14against all zthe lofty mountains,
and against all the uplifted hills;
15against every high tower,
and against every fortified wall;
16against all aathe ships of Tarshish,
and against all the beautiful craft.
17 abAnd the haughtiness of man shall be humbled,
and the lofty pride of men shall be brought low,
and the  Lord alone will be exalted in that day.
18 acAnd the idols shall utterly pass away.
19 adAnd people shall enter the caves of the rocks
and the holes of the ground
Hebrew dust

from before the terror of the  Lord,
and from the splendor of his majesty,
afwhen he rises to terrify the earth.
20 In that day agmankind will cast away
their idols of silver and their idols of gold,
which they made for themselves to worship,
to the moles and to the ahbats,
21 aito enter the caverns of the rocks
and the clefts of the cliffs,
from before the terror of the  Lord,
and from the splendor of his majesty,
ajwhen he rises to terrify the earth.
22 akStop regarding man
alin whose nostrils is breath,
for of what account is he?
