1 [The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.]
2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that 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 And many people shall go and say, "Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob. And he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths." For out of Zion the law shall go forth, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
4 And he will judge among the nations and will rebuke many people. And they shall beat their swords into plow-shares and their spears into pruning-hooks. Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.
5 O house of Jacob, come, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.
6 Therefore, you have forsaken your people the house of Jacob, because they are replenished from the east and are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they please themselves in the children of strangers.
7 Their land is also full of silver and gold, neither is there any end of their treasures. Their land is also full of horses, neither is there any end of their chariots.
8 Their land is also full of idols. They worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made.
9 And the common man bows down, and the great man humbles himself; therefore, do not forgive them.
10 Enter into the rock and hide in the dust, for fear of the LORD and for the glory of his majesty.
11 The lofty looks of man shall be humbled and the haughtiness of men shall be abased, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.
12 For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon everyone who is proud and lofty and upon everyone who is lifted up (and he shall be brought low),
13 And upon all the cedars of Lebanon that are high and lifted up and upon all the oaks of Bashan,
14 And upon all the high mountains and upon all the hills that are lifted up,
15 And upon every high tower and upon every fortified wall,
16 And upon all the ships of Tarshish and upon all pleasant pictures.
17 And the loftiness of man shall be abased and the haughtiness of men shall be made low, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.
18 And he will utterly abolish the idols.
19 And they shall go into the holes of the rocks and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD and for the glory of his majesty, when he arises to shake the earth terribly.
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 arises to shake the earth terribly.
22 Cease from man, whose breath is in his nostrils. For what is he to be accounted of?
