The Mountain of the Lord

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

  lIt shall come to pass in the latter days

that mthe mountain of the house of the Lord

shall be established as the highest of the mountains,

and shall be lifted up above the hills;

and nall the nations shall flow to it,

  and omany peoples shall 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 his ways

and that we may walk in his paths.”

For pout of Zion shall go the law,1

and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

  He shall judge between the nations,

and shall decide disputes for many peoples;

qand they shall beat their swords into plowshares,

and their spears into pruning hooks;

rnation shall not lift up sword against nation,

neither shall they learn war anymore.

  O house of Jacob,

come, let us walk

in sthe light of the Lord.

 The Day of the Lord

For you have rejected your people,

the house of Jacob,

because they are full of things tfrom the east

and uof fortune-tellers vlike the Philistines,

and they wstrike hands with the children of foreigners.

  Their land is xfilled with silver and gold,

and there is no end to their treasures;

their land is yfilled with horses,

and there is no end to their chariots.

  Their land is zfilled with idols;

they bow down to athe work of their hands,

to what their own fingers have made.

  So man bis humbled,

and each one bis brought low—

do not forgive them!

  10  cEnter into the rock

and hide in the dust

dfrom before the terror of the Lord,

and from the splendor of his majesty.

  11  eThe haughty looks of man shall be brought low,

and the lofty pride of men shall be humbled,

and the Lord alone will be exalted in that day.

  12  fFor the Lord of hosts has a day

against all that is proud and lofty,

against all that is lifted up—and it shall be brought low;

  13  against all the gcedars of Lebanon,

lofty and lifted up;

and against all the hoaks of Bashan;

  14  against all ithe lofty mountains,

and against all the uplifted hills;

  15  against every high tower,

and against every fortified wall;

  16  against all jthe ships of Tarshish,

and against all the beautiful craft.

  17  kAnd the haughtiness of man shall be humbled,

and the lofty pride of men shall be brought low,

and the Lord alone will be exalted in that day.

  18  lAnd the idols shall utterly pass away.

  19  mAnd people shall enter the caves of the rocks

and the holes of the ground,2

from before the terror of the Lord,

and from the splendor of his majesty,

nwhen he rises to terrify the earth.

  20  In that day omankind will cast away

their idols of silver and their idols of gold,

which they made for themselves to worship,

to the moles and to the pbats,

  21  mto enter the caverns of the rocks

and the clefts of the cliffs,

from before the terror of the Lord,

and from the splendor of his majesty,

nwhen he rises to terrify the earth.

  22  qStop regarding man

rin whose nostrils is breath,

for of what account is he?
