CHAPTER 2

1 The word which Isaiah, the son of Amoz, saw concerning Judah And Jerusalem.

2 And it shall come to pass in the last of the days,
That the mountain of the house of Jehovah
Shall be established on the top of the mountains,
And shall be exalted above the hills;
And all nations shall flow to it.

3 And many peoples shall come, and shall say,
Come, and we shall go up
To the mountain of Jehovah,
To the house of the God of Jacob;
And he will teach us in his ways,
And we shall walk in his paths;
For out of Zion shall go forth the law,
And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

4 And he will judge among the nations,
And will rebuke many peoples:
And they shall beat their swords into spades,
And their spears into pruning-hooks;
And nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
Neither shall they practise war any more.

5 O house of Jacob, come ye,
And we shall walk in the light of the Lord.

6 Verily thou hast forsaken thy people, the house of Jacob;
Because they are filled with the east 353353     Or, With antiquity.
And with soothsayers, like the Philistines;
And they have delighted in the children of foreigners.

7 Their land is full of silver and gold,
And there is no end to their treasures.
Their land is also full of horses,
And there is no end to their chariots.

8 Their land is also full of idols,
And they have bowed down
Before the work of their own hands,
Before that which their fingers have made.

9 And the man of low degree boweth down,
And the man of rank humbleth himself;
Therefore do not thou forgive them. 354354     Or, Thou wilt not forgive them.

10 Enter into the rock,
Hide thee in the dust,
From before the fear of the Lord
And the glory of his majesty.

11 The loftiness of the eyes of men shall be humbled,
And the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down;
And Jehovah alone shall be exalted in that day.

12 For the day of Jehovah of hosts shall be
On every one that is proud and lofty,
And on all that is lifted up,
And it shall be brought low.

13 Even on all the cedars of Lebanon high and lifted up,
On all the oaks of Bashan,

14 And on all the lofty mountains,
And on all the high hills,

15 And on every lofty tower,
And on every fortified wall;

16 On all the ships of Tarshish,
And on delightful pictures.

17 And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down,
And the haughtiness of men shall be humbled;
And Jehovah alone shall be exalted on that day.

18 And he will utterly abolish the idols.

19 And they shall enter into caverns of the rocks,
And into clefts of the earth,
From the presence of the terror of Jehovah,
And from the glory of his majesty,
When he shall arise to shake the earth.

20 In that day shall a man cast away
His idols of silver,
And his idols of gold,
Which they made for him to worship,
Into the cavern of the moles and of the bats;

21 And they shall enter into the clefts of the rocks,
And into the tops of the ragged rocks,
From before the fear of the Lord,
And from the glory of his majesty,
When he shall arise to shake the earth.

22 Cease then from man,
Whose breath is in his nostrils;
For in what respect 355355     Or, To what? or, How much? is he valued?
