Isaiah 2

Thomson(i) 1 The word which came to Esaias, son of Amos concerning Judea and concerning Jerusalem. 2 Because in the last days, the mount of the Lord will be conspicuous; and the house of God will be on the top of mountains; and exalted above the hills: therefore all the nations will come to it. 3 Many nations indeed, will go saying, "Come, let us go up to the mount of the Lord; and to the house of the God of Jacob. And he will teach us his way, and we will walk therein." For from Sion shall go forth a law; and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. 4 And he will judge among the nations; and work conviction in many a people: and they shall beat their swords into plough shares; and their spears into pruning hooks: and nation shall not lift up a sword against nation; nor shall they learn war any more. 5 Now therefore, O house of Jacob; come, let us walk in the light of the Lord. 6 For he hath forgiven his people, the house of Israel "Because their land was filled as at first with divinations; like that of the Philistines and many strange children were born to them; 7 for their country was filled with silver and gold, and there was no counting their treasures; and their land was filled with horses, and there was no end to their chariots; 8 and the land was filled with abominations, the workmanship of their own hands; and they worshipped the things which their fingers had made, 9 and the commoner bowed down and the noble humbled himself; therefore I will not forgive them." 10 "Now therefore go into the rocks and hide yourselves in the earth, from the tremendous presence of the Lord; and from the glory of his majesty, when he shall arise, to crush the land." 11 "For the eyes of the Lord are lofty; but man is low; and the loftiness of these men shall be humbled; and the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day. 12 For the day of the Lord of hosts is against every scorner and haughty man; and against every one high and lofty, and they shall be humbled: 13 even against every of those high towering cedars of Lebanon; and against every oak of Basan; 14 and against every lofty mountain; and against every hill that is high; 15 and against every stately tower; and against every high raised wall; 16 and against every ship of the sea; and against every ensign of beauteous ships: 17 [[J] Jehovah] and every man shall be humbled; and the haughtiness of these men shall fall; and the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day. 18 Then will they hide all these handiworks, 19 carrying them into caverns and clefts of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, from the tremendous presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his majesty, when he shall arise to crush the lands. 20 For on that day men will cast to the bats their abominations both of silver and gold, which they made to worship vanities; 21 that they may go into holes of the flinty rock: nay into the very clefts of the rock, from the tremendous presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his majesty, when he shall arise to crush the land.
