Bible: Isa 2:5-12

2:5 O descendants 1  of Jacob,

come, let us walk in the Lord’s guiding light. 2 

The Lord’s Day of Judgment

2:6 Indeed, O Lord, 3  you have abandoned your people,

2:7 Their land is full of gold and silver;

there is no end to their wealth. 7 

Their land is full of horses;

there is no end to their chariots. 8 

2:8 Their land is full of worthless idols;

they worship 9  the product of their own hands,

what their own fingers have fashioned.

2:9 Men bow down to them in homage,

they lie flat on the ground in worship. 10 

Don’t spare them! 11 

2:10 Go up into the rocky cliffs,

hide in the ground.

Get away from the dreadful judgment of the Lord, 12 

from his royal splendor!

2:11 Proud men will be brought low,

arrogant men will be humiliated; 13 

the Lord alone will be exalted 14 

in that day.

2:12 Indeed, the Lord who commands armies has planned a day of judgment, 15 

for 16  all the high and mighty,

for all who are proud – they will be humiliated;
