2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD'S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, 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.
4 And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
6 Therefore thou hast forsaken thy people the house of Jacob, because they be replenished from the east, and are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they please themselves in the children of strangers.

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

The first five verses of the second chapter of Isaiah are a beautiful beginning of the Pope Francesco's pontificate. The clue and answer to the global problems as well as God's words for every man, not only Catholic or Christian.

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.

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.
J Wisor's Isaiah Chapter 2 comment on 5/11/2010, 10:06am...
In a very colorful way, Isaiah depicts the humiliation of those who prefer high-sounding philosophy to the knowledge of God. One acknowledging God as His own humble servant admires and magnifies Him in seeking to show forth His virtues, as we're exhorted by the Letter (epistle) of Saint Peter Chapter One.
This esaic prophecy can help a person who loves his or her own life too much to forsake pride, to colorfully imagine what it might be like to have to relinquish such pride involuntarily in being humbled.
The conclusion to and summation of this chapter also liberate us from oppression of man (to feeling oppressed in servitude to our fellow-man's opinion).
