Isaiah

Isaiah 2 ©

1Isaiah prophesieth the coming of Christ's kingdom. 6Wickedness is why God hath forsaken his people. 10The prophet forewarneth them of the terrible day of the Lord.

1

THE aword that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.

2

And bit shall come to pass in the last days, that cthe mountain of the LORD's house shall be 1established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all dnations shall flow unto it.

3

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

4

And hhe shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: iand they shall beat their swords into *plowshares, and their spears into 2pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

5

O house of Jacob, jcome ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.

6

¶Therefore thou hast kforsaken thy people the house of Jacob, because they be lreplenished 3from the east, and are *soothsayers mlike the Philistines, nand they 4please themselves in the children of strangers.

7

oTheir land also is full of silver and gold, neither is there any end of their treasures; their pland is also full of horses, neither is there any end of their chariots:

8

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

9

And rthe mean man boweth down, and the great man humbleth himself: therefore forgive them not.

10

sEnter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, tfor fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty.

11

The ulofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the vLORD alone shall be exalted in that day.

12

For wthe 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 he shall be brought low:

13

And upon all the xcedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan,

14

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

15

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

16

And upon zall the ships of Tarshish, and upon all 5pleasant *pictures.

17

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

And they shall go into the choles of the rocks, and into the caves of 7the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when dhe ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

20

In that day a man eshall cast 8his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, 9which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats;

21

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

g v.10. Lu. 23.30.
22

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