1 The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw in a vision, concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
2 It shall come to pass in the last days that the mount of the house of the LORD, shall be set in the top of the mountains, and shall be lifted up above the hills: and all nations shall resort thereto. 3 And much people shall go and say: come, and let us go up to the hill of the LORD and unto the house of the God of Jacob: that he may teach us his ways, and that we may walk in his paths. For out of Zion shall come the law, and the word of God out of Jerusalem. 4 And he shall be judge among the heathen and tell many nations their faults. And they shall turn their swords into mattocks and their spears into scythes. One nation shall not lift up a sword against another, neither shall they teach to war any more.
5 O house of Jacob, come and let us walk in the light of the LORD. 6 But thou hast forsaken thy people the house of Jacob, because they go far beyond the east countries in Sorcerers - who they have as the Philistines had - and in calkers of men's births, whereof they have too many. 7 As soon as your land was full of silver and gold, and no end of your treasure; so soon as your land was full of strong horses and no end of your chariots: 8 Immediately was it full of idols also, even works of your own hands, which ye yourselves have fashioned, and your fingers have made. 9 There kneeleth the man, there falleth the man down before them; but thou, O LORD, wilt not leave them unpunished. 10 And therefore get thee soon into some rock, and hide thee in the ground for the fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty: 11 which casteth down the high looks of presumptuous persons, and bringeth low the pride of man, and the LORD only shall be exalted in that day.
12 For the day of the LORD of Hosts shall go over all pride and presumption, upon all them that exalt themselves, and shall bring them all down: 13 upon all high and stout Cedar trees of Lebanon, and upon all the oaks of Bashan, 14 upon all high hills, and upon all stout mountains, 15 upon all costly towers, and upon all strong walls, 16 upon all ships of Tarshish, and upon everything that is glorious and pleasant to look upon. 17 And it shall bring down the pride of man, and lay man's presumptuousness full low, and the LORD shall only have the victory in that day. 18 But the Idols shall utterly be rooted out.
19 Men shall creep into holes of stone, and into caves of the earth, for the fear of the LORD, and from the glory of his majesty: what time as he shall arise to shake the earth. 20 Then, then shall man cast away his gods of silver and gold - which he nevertheless had made to honour them - unto moles and bats 21 that he may the better creep into the caves and rocks, and into the cliffs of hard stones, from the sight of the fearful judge and from the glory of his Majesty. 22 Fear not, then, any man whose breath is in his nostrils - for what is he?
