God's Universal Reign
1 The word which Isaiah R67 the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
2 Now it will come about that
In R68 the last days
The mountain R69 of the house of the LORD
Will be established as F16 the chief of the mountains,
And will be raised above the hills;
And all R70 the nations will stream to it.
3 And many peoples will 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 concerning F17 His ways
And that we may walk in His paths."
For the law F18 will go forth from R71 Zion
And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
4 And He will judge between the nations,
And will render F19 decisions for many peoples;
And they R72 will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks.
Nation R73 will not lift up sword against nation,
And never again will they learn war.
5 Come, house R74 of Jacob, and let us walk in the light R75 of the LORD.
6 For You have abandoned R76 Your people, the house of Jacob,
Because they are filled with influences from the east,
And they are soothsayers like R77 the Philistines,
And they strike R78 bargains with the children of foreigners.
7 Their land has also been filled with silver and gold
And there is no end to their treasures;
Their land has also been filled with horses R79
And there is no end to their chariots.
8 Their land has also been filled R80 with idols;
They worship the work R81 of their hands,
That which their fingers have made.
9 So the R82 common man has been humbled
And the man of importance has been abased,
But do R83 not forgive them.
10 Enter R84 the rock and hide in the dust
From R85 the terror of the LORD and from the splendor of His majesty.
11 The proud R86 F20 look of man will be abased
And the loftiness R87 of man will be humbled,
And the LORD alone will be exalted in that day.
A Day of Reckoning Coming
12 For the LORD of hosts will have a day of reckoning
Against everyone R88 who is proud and lofty
And against everyone who is lifted up,
That he may be abased.
13 And it will be against all the cedars of Lebanon that are lofty and lifted up,
Against all the oaks R89 of Bashan,
14 Against all the lofty R90 mountains,
Against all the hills that are lifted up,
15 Against every high R91 tower,
Against every fortified wall,
16 Against all the ships R92 of Tarshish
And against all the beautiful craft.
17 The pride of man will be humbled
And the loftiness of men will be abased;
And the LORD alone will be exalted in that day,
18 But the idols R93 will completely vanish.
19 Men will go R94 into caves of the rocks
And into holes of the ground F21
Before the terror of the LORD
And the splendor of His majesty,
When He arises to R95 make the earth tremble.
20 In that day men will cast R96 away to the moles and the bats R97
Their idols of silver and their idols of gold,
Which they made for themselves to worship,
21 In order to go R98 into the caverns of the rocks and the clefts of the cliffs
Before the terror of the LORD and the splendor of His majesty,
When He arises to make the earth tremble.
22 Stop R99 F22 regarding man, whose breath of life is in his nostrils;
For why R100 F23 should he be esteemed?
