Bible: Isaiah 2:6-15

The Lord’s Day of Judgment

2:6 Indeed, O Lord, 1  you have abandoned your people,

the descendants of Jacob.

For diviners from the east are everywhere; 2 

they consult omen readers like the Philistines do. 3 

Plenty of foreigners are around. 4 

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

there is no end to their wealth. 5 

Their land is full of horses;

there is no end to their chariots. 6 

2:8 Their land is full of worthless idols;

they worship 7  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. 8 

Don’t spare them! 9 

2:10 Go up into the rocky cliffs,

hide in the ground.

Get away from the dreadful judgment of the Lord, 10 

from his royal splendor!

2:11 Proud men will be brought low,

arrogant men will be humiliated; 11 

the Lord alone will be exalted 12 

in that day.

2:12 Indeed, the Lord who commands armies has planned a day of judgment, 13 

for 14  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; 15 

2:14 for all the tall mountains,

for all the high hills, 16 

2:15 for every high tower,

for every fortified wall,
