Isaiah 2 ©

The prophet speaks in rhetorical terms of the coming of Christ’s Kingdom, and of the calling of the Gentiles, v. 2. As also of the rejection of the Jews, because of their abominable sins, 6. Especially because of their idolatry and pride, 8. And he exhorts all men to fear God, because of his great majesty, and power over all things, 10. A prophecy concerning the great terror that would come upon idolaters, 19.


THE 1word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw 2concerning Judah and Jerusalem.


And it shall come to pass 3in the last days, that 4thea mountain of the LORD's house shall be established 5in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and 6all nations shall flow unto it.


And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us 7of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: 8for outb of Zion 9shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.


And 10he shall judge among the nations, and shall 11rebuke many people: 12and they shall beat their swordsc into 13plowshares, and their spears into 14pruninghooks: 15nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they 16learn war any more.


O house of Jacob, 17come ye, and let us walk 18in the light of the LORD.


19Therefore thou hast forsaken 20thy people the house of Jacob, because they be replenished 21from the east, and are 22soothsayers like the Philistines, 23and they 24please themselves in the children of strangers.


25Their land also is 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:


Their land also is full 26of idols; they worship the work 27of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made:


28And the meand man boweth down, and 29the great man humbleth himself: therefore 30forgive them not.


31Enter into the rock, and hide thee 32in the dust, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty.


Thee33lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be 34exalted 35in that day.


For 36the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and 37he shall be brought low:


And upon 38all the 39cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of 40Bashan,


And upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up,


And upon every 41high tower, and upon every fenced wall,


And upon all the 42ships of Tarshish, and upon all 43pleasant pictures.


And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted 44in that day.


And the idols he shall utterly abolish.


And 45they shall go 46into the holes of the rocks, and 47into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly 48the earth.


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 49the moles and to the bats;


To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the 50tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.


51Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for 52wherein is he to be accounted of?
