Bible: Isa 2:11-22

2:11 Proud men will be brought low,

arrogant men will be humiliated; 1 

the Lord alone will be exalted 2 

in that day.

2:12 Indeed, the Lord who commands armies has planned a day of judgment, 3 

for 4  all the high and mighty,

for all who are proud – they will be humiliated;

2:13 for all the cedars of Lebanon,

that are so high and mighty,

for all the oaks of Bashan; 5 

2:14 for all the tall mountains,

for all the high hills, 6 

2:15 for every high tower,

for every fortified wall,

2:16 for all the large ships, 7 

for all the impressive 8  ships. 9 

2:17 Proud men will be humiliated,

arrogant men will be brought low; 10 

the Lord alone will be exalted 11 

in that day.

2:18 The worthless idols will be completely eliminated. 12 

2:19 They 13  will go into caves in the rocky cliffs

and into holes in the ground, 14 

trying to escape the dreadful judgment of the Lord 15 

and his royal splendor,

when he rises up to terrify the earth. 16 

2:20 At that time 17  men will throw

their silver and gold idols,

which they made for themselves to worship, 18 

into the caves where rodents and bats live, 19 

2:21 so they themselves can go into the crevices of the rocky cliffs

and the openings under the rocky overhangs, 20 

trying to escape the dreadful judgment of the Lord 21 

and his royal splendor,

when he rises up to terrify the earth. 22 

2:22 Stop trusting in human beings,

whose life’s breath is in their nostrils.

For why should they be given special consideration?
