Isaiah 2 Modern English Version (MEV)

The Mountain of the Lord

The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.

In the last days,

the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established
    on the top of the mountains,
and shall be exalted above the hills,
    and all nations shall flow to it.

Many people shall go and say,

“Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
    to the house of the God of Jacob,
and He will teach us of His ways,
    and we will walk in His paths.”
For out of Zion shall go forth the law,
    and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
He shall judge among the nations,
    and shall rebuke many peoples;
and they shall beat their swords into plowshares,
    and their spears into pruning hooks;
nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
    nor shall they learn war any more.

O house of Jacob, come,
    and let us walk in the light of the Lord.

The Day of the Lord

For You have forsaken Your people,
    the house of Jacob,
because they are replenished from the east,
    and are soothsayers like the Philistines,
    and they please themselves with the children of strangers.
Their land also is full of silver and gold,
    and there is no end to their treasures;
their land is also full of horses,
    and there is no end to their chariots.
Their land also is full of idols;
    they worship the work of their own hands,
    that which their own fingers have made.
And the common man bows down,
    and the great man humbles himself;
    therefore, do not forgive them.

10 Enter into the rock,
    and hide in the dust
from the fear of the Lord
    and from the glory of His majesty.
11 The lofty looks of man shall be humbled,
    and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down,
and the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day.

12 For the day of the Lord of Hosts shall be
    upon everything that is proud and lofty,
    and upon everything that is lifted up,
    and it shall be brought low;
13 and it will be upon all the cedars of Lebanon that are high and lifted up,
    and upon all the oaks of Bashan,
14 and upon all the high mountains,
    and upon all the hills that are lifted up,
15 and upon all the high towers,
    and upon every fenced wall,
16 and upon all the ships of Tarshish,
    and upon all pleasant sloops.
17 The loftiness of man shall be humbled,
    and the haughtiness of men shall be brought low;
the Lord alone will be exalted in that day;
18     the idols He shall utterly abolish.

19 They shall go into the holes of the rocks,
    and into the caves of the earth,
from the fear of the Lord,
    and from the glory of His majesty,
    when He shall arise to shake the earth mightily.
20 In that day a man shall cast away
    his idols of silver and his idols of gold,
which they made for themselves to worship,
    to the moles and to the bats,
21 to enter the caverns of the rocks,
    and into the clefts of the cliffs,
from the terror of the Lord,
    and from the glory of His majesty,
    when He arises to shake the earth mightily.

22 Cease regarding man,
    whose breath is in his nostrils;
for why should he be esteemed?
