The word which aIsaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
Now it will come about that aIn the last days The bmountain of the house of the Lord Will be established as the chief of the mountains, And will be raised above the hills; And call the nations will stream to it.
And many peoples will 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 concerning His ways And that we may walk in His paths." For the law will go forth afrom Zion And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
And He will judge between the nations, And will render decisions for many peoples; And athey will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. bNation will not lift up sword against nation, And never again will they learn war.
Come, ahouse of Jacob, and let us walk in the blight of the Lord.
For You have aabandoned Your people, the house of Jacob, Because they are filled with influences from the east, And they are soothsayers blike the Philistines, And they cstrike bargains with the children of foreigners.
Their land has also been filled with silver and gold And there is no end to their treasures; Their land has also been filled with ahorses And there is no end to their chariots.
Their land has also been afilled with idols; They worship the bwork of their hands, That which their fingers have made.
So athe common man has been humbled And the man of importance has been abased, But bdo not forgive them.
aEnter the rock and hide in the dust bFrom the terror of the Lord and from the splendor of His majesty.
The aproud look of man will be abased And the bloftiness of man will be humbled, And the Lord alone will be exalted in that day.
For the Lord of hosts will have a day of reckoning Against aeveryone who is proud and lofty And against everyone who is lifted up, That he may be abased.
And it will be against all the cedars of Lebanon that are lofty and lifted up, Against all the aoaks of Bashan,
Against all the alofty mountains, Against all the hills that are lifted up,
Against every ahigh tower, Against every fortified wall,
Against all the aships of Tarshish And against all the beautiful craft.
The pride of man will be humbled And the loftiness of men will be abased; And the Lord alone will be exalted in that day,
But the aidols will completely vanish.
Men will ago into caves of the rocks And into holes of the ground Before the terror of the Lord And the splendor of His majesty, When He arises bto make the earth tremble.
In that day men will acast away to the moles and the bbats Their idols of silver and their idols of gold, Which they made for themselves to worship,
In order to ago into the caverns of the rocks and the clefts of the cliffs Before the terror of the Lord and the splendor of His majesty, When He arises to make the earth tremble.
aStop regarding man, whose breath of life is in his nostrils; For bwhy should he be esteemed?
