Isaiah Chapter 2

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

2 Now it will come about that In the last days The mountain of the house of the LORD Will be established as the chief of the mountains, And will be raised above the hills; And all the nations will stream to it.

3 And many peoples will come and say, "Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, To the house of the God of Jacob; That He may teach us concerning His ways And that we may walk in His paths. For the law will go forth from Zion And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem."

4 And He will judge between the nations, And will render decisions for many peoples; And they will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, And never again will they learn war.

5 Come, house of Jacob, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.

6 For You have abandoned Your people, the house of Jacob, Because they are filled {with influences} from the east, And {they are} soothsayers like the Philistines, And they strike {bargains} with the children of foreigners.

7 Their land has also been filled with silver and gold And there is no end to their treasures; Their land has also been filled with horses And there is no end to their chariots.

8 Their land has also been filled with idols; They worship the work of their hands, That which their fingers have made.

9 So the {common} man has been humbled And the man {of importance} has been abased, But do not forgive them.

10 Enter the rock and hide in the dust From the terror of the LORD and from the splendor of His majesty.

11 The proud look of man will be abased And the loftiness of man will be humbled, And the LORD alone will be exalted in that day.

12 For the LORD of hosts will have a day {of reckoning} Against everyone who is proud and lofty And against everyone who is lifted up, That he may be abased.

13 And {it will be} against all the cedars of Lebanon that are lofty and lifted up, Against all the oaks of Bashan,

14 Against all the lofty mountains, Against all the hills that are lifted up,

15 Against every high tower, Against every fortified wall,

16 Against all the ships of Tarshish And against all the beautiful craft.

17 The pride of man will be humbled And the loftiness of men will be abased; And the LORD alone will be exalted in that day,

18 But the idols will completely vanish.

19 {Men} will go into caves of the rocks And into holes of the ground Before the terror of the LORD And the splendor of His majesty, When He arises to make the earth tremble.

20 In that day men will cast away to the moles and the bats Their idols of silver and their idols of gold, Which they made for themselves to worship,

21 In order to go into the caverns of the rocks and the clefts of the cliffs Before the terror of the LORD and the splendor of His majesty, When He arises to make the earth tremble.

22 Stop regarding man, whose breath {of life} is in his nostrils; For why should he be esteemed?

Matthew Henry's Bible commentary for Isaiah Chapter 2...

The conversion of the Gentiles, Description of the sinfulness of Israel. (1-9) The awful punishment of unbelievers. (10-22)1-9 The calling of the Gentiles, the spread of the gospel, and that far more extensive preaching of it yet to come, are foretold. Let Christians strengthen one another, and support one another. It is God who teaches his people, by his word and Spirit. Christ promotes peace, as well as holiness. If all men were real Christians, there could be no war; but nothing answering to these expressions has yet taken place on the earth. Whatever others do, let us walk in the light of this peace. Let us remember that when true religion flourishes, men delight in going up to the house of the Lord, and in urging others to accompany them. Those are in danger who please themselves with strangers to God; for we soon learn to follow the ways of persons whose company we keep. It is not having silver and gold, horses and chariots, that displeases God, but depending upon them, as if we could not be safe, and easy, and happy without them, and could not but be so with them. Sin is a disgrace to the poorest and the lowest. And though lands called Christian are not full of idols, in the literal sense, are they not full of idolized riches? and are not men so busy about their gains and indulgences, that the Lord, his truths, and precepts, are forgotten or despised? 10-22 The taking of Jerusalem by the Chaldeans seems first meant here, when idolatry among the Jews was done away; but our thoughts are led forward to the destruction of all the enemies of Christ. It is folly for those who are pursued by the wrath of God, to think to hide or shelter themselves from it. The shaking of the earth will be terrible to those who set their affections on things of the earth. Men's haughtiness will be brought down, either by the grace of God convincing them of the evil of pride, or by the providence of God depriving them of all the things they were proud of. The day of the Lord shall be upon those things in which they put their confidence. Those who will not be reasoned out of their sins, sooner or later shall be frightened out of them. Covetous men make money their god; but the time will come when they will feel it as much their burden. This whole passage may be applied to the case of an awakened sinner, ready to leave all that his soul may be saved. The Jews were prone to rely on their heathen neighbours; but they are here called upon to cease from depending on mortal man. We are all prone to the same sin. Then let not man be your fear, let not him be your hope; but let your hope be in the Lord your God. Let us make this our great concern.

In Isaiah 2:5 it says come lets walk in the light, we can\\\\\\\'t stay in sin and walk in the light. He\\\\\\\'s asking us to get away from sin and walk with Him because He is the light, so if we are in sin we wouldn’t see the light, but if we come out from under sin then we are free to walk with the light. Thank you Jesus for being that light in my life.

Daniel Cohen Assuline's comment on 9/16/2010, 12:07pm...

The Word of the Lord is glorious and full of Majesty and Honor. I am delighted and comforted that I am in His Kingdom as a Christain serving the Lord of Hosts daily. The book of Isaia, tells it to the whole earth and speaks to his people Israel about Himself and what He expects from the people of the Earth and Israel.
