The Future House of God

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

2 Now ait shall come to pass bin the latter days

cThat the mountain of the Lord’s house

Shall be established on the top of the mountains,

And shall be exalted above the hills;

And all nations shall flow to it.

3 Many people shall come and say,

d“Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,

To the house of the God of Jacob;

He will teach us His ways,

And we shall walk in His paths.”

eFor out of Zion shall go forth the law,

And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

4 He shall judge between the nations,

And rebuke many people;

They shall beat their swords into plowshares,

And their spears into pruning 1hooks;

Nation shall not lift up sword against nation,

Neither shall they learn war anymore.

The Day of the Lord

5 O house of Jacob, come and let us fwalk

In the light of the Lord.

6 For You have forsaken Your people, the house of Jacob,

Because they are filled gwith eastern ways;

They are hsoothsayers like the Philistines,

iAnd they 2are pleased with the children of foreigners.

7 jTheir land is also 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 kTheir land is also full of idols;

They worship the work of their own hands,

That which their own fingers have made.

9 People bow down,

And each man humbles himself;

Therefore do not forgive them.

10 lEnter into the rock, and hide in the dust,

From the terror of the Lord

And the glory of His majesty.

11 The 3lofty looks of man shall be mhumbled,

The haughtiness of men shall be bowed down,

And the Lord alone shall be exalted nin that day.

12 For the day of the Lord of hosts

Shall come upon everything proud and lofty,

Upon everything lifted up—

And it shall be brought low—

13 Upon all othe cedars of Lebanon that are high and lifted up,

And upon all the oaks of Bashan;

14 pUpon all the high mountains,

And upon all the hills that are lifted up;

15 Upon every high tower,

And upon every fortified wall;

16 qUpon all the ships of Tarshish,

And upon all the beautiful sloops.

17 The 4loftiness of man shall be bowed down,

And the haughtiness of men shall be brought low;

The Lord alone will be exalted in that day,

18 But the idols 5He shall utterly abolish.

19 They shall go into the rholes of the rocks,

And into the caves of the 6earth,

sFrom the terror of the Lord

And the glory of His majesty,

When He arises tto shake the earth mightily.

20 In that day a man will cast away his idols of silver

And his idols of gold,

Which they made, each for himself to worship,

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 uSever 7yourselves from such a man,

Whose vbreath is in his nostrils;

For 8of what account is he?
