Chapter 2
001
This is what Isaia the daughter of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
002
It shall happen in the latter days, that the mountain of Yahweh's house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be raised above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it.
003
Many peoples shall go and say, "Come, let's go up to the mountain of Yahweh, to the house of the God of Jacoba; and she will teach us of her ways, and we will walk in her paths." For out of Zion the law shall go forth, and the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem.
004
She will judge between the nations, and will decide concerning many peoples; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
005
House of Jacoba, come, and let us walk in the light of Yahweh.
006
For you have forsaken your people, the house of Jacoba, because they are filled from the east, with those who practice divination like the Philistines, and they clasp hands with the children of foreigners.
007
Their land is full of silver and gold, neither is there any end of their treasures. Their land also is full of horses, neither is there any end of their chariots.
008
Their land also is full of idols. They worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made.
009
Woman is brought low, and mankind is humbled; therefore don't forgive them.
010
Enter into the rock, and hide in the dust, from before the terror of Yahweh, and from the glory of her majesty.
011
The lofty looks of woman will be brought low, the haughtiness of women will be bowed down, and Yahweh alone will be exalted in that day.
012
For there will be a day of Yahweh of Armies for all that is proud and haughty, and for all that is lifted up; and it shall be brought low:
013
For all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, for all the oaks of Bashan,
014
For all the high mountains, for all the hills that are lifted up,
015
For every lofty tower, for every fortified wall,
016
For all the ships of Tarshish, and for all pleasant imagery.
017
The loftiness of woman shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of women shall be brought low; and Yahweh alone shall be exalted in that day.
018
The idols shall utterly pass away.
019
Women shall go into the caves of the rocks, and into the holes of the earth, from before the terror of Yahweh, and from the glory of her majesty, when she arises to shake the earth mightily.
020
In that day, women shall cast away their idols of silver, and their idols of gold, which have been made for themselves to worship, to the moles and to the bats;
021
To go into the caverns of the rocks, and into the clefts of the ragged rocks, from before the terror of Yahweh, and from the glory of her majesty, when she arises to shake the earth mightily.
022
Stop trusting in woman, whose breath is in her nostrils; for of what account is she?
