Isaiah 2:20–22 — The New International Version (NIV)

20 In that day people will throw away

to the moles and bats

their idols of silver and idols of gold,

which they made to worship.

21 They will flee to caverns in the rocks

and to the overhanging crags

from the fearful presence of the Lord

and the splendor of his majesty,

when he rises to shake the earth.

22 Stop trusting in mere humans,

who have but a breath in their nostrils.

Why hold them in esteem?

Isaiah 2:20–22 — King James Version (KJV 1900)

20 In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold,

Which they made each one for himself to worship,

To the moles and to the bats;

21 To go into the clefts of the rocks,

And into the tops of the ragged rocks,

For fear of the Lord, and for the glory of his majesty,

When he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

22 Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils:

For wherein is he to be accounted of?

Isaiah 2:20–22 — New Living Translation (NLT)

20 On that day of judgment they will abandon the gold and silver idols

they made for themselves to worship.

They will leave their gods to the rodents and bats,

21 while they crawl away into caverns

and hide among the jagged rocks in the cliffs.

They will try to escape the terror of the Lord

and the glory of his majesty

as he rises to shake the earth.

They are as frail as breath.

What good are they?

To the moles and bats,

21 To go into the clefts of the rocks,

And into the crags of the rugged rocks,

From the terror of the Lord

And the glory of His majesty,

When He arises to shake the earth mightily.

22 Sever yourselves from such a man,

Whose breath is in his nostrils;

For of what account is he?

and cracks in the rocks

from the anger of the Lord

and his great power,

when he stands to shake the earth.

because people are only human;

they aren’t able to help you.
