KING JAMES VERSION (KJV)


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

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.

5  O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.

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.

7  Their land also is full of silver and gold, neither is there any end of their treasures; their land is also full of horses, neither is there any end of their chariots:

8  Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made:

9  And the mean man boweth down, and the great man humbleth himself: therefore forgive them not.

10  Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty.

11  The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.

12  For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:

13  And upon all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan,

14  And upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up,

15  And upon every high tower, and upon every fenced wall,

16  And upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all pleasant pictures.

17  And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.

18  And the idols he shall utterly abolish.

19  And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

20  In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats;

21  To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

22  Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?

1  The word that Isaiah, the sonne of Amoz, sawe concerning Iudah and Ierusalem.

2  And it shall come to passe in the last dayes, that the mountaine of the Lords house shall be established in the top of the mountaines, and shall be exalted aboue the hilles; and all nations shall flow vnto it.

3  And many people shall goe & say; Come yee and let vs go vp to the mountaine of the Lord, to the house of the God of Iacob, and he will teach vs of his wayes, and we will walke in his pathes: for out of Zion shall goe forth the lawe, and the word of the Lord from Ierusalem.

4  And hee shall iudge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beate their swords into plow-shares, and their speares into pruning hookes: nation shall not lift vp sword against nation, neither shall they learne warre any more.

5  O house of Iacob, come yee, and let vs walke in the light of the Lord.

6   Therefore thou hast forsaken thy people the house of Iacob; because they be replenished from the East, and are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they please themselues in the children of strangers.

7  Their land also is full of siluer and gold, neither is there any end of their treasures: their land is also full of horses; neither is there any end of their charets.

8  Their land also is full of idoles: they worship the worke of their owne hands, that which their owne fingers haue made.

9  And the meane man boweth downe, and the great man humbleth himselfe; therefore forgiue them not.

10   Enter into the rocke, and hide thee in the dust, for feare of the Lord, and for the glory of his Maiestie.

11  The loftie lookes of man shalbe humbled, and the hautines of men shalbe bowed downe: and the Lord alone shalbe exalted in that day.

12  For the day of the Lord of hostes shall bee vpon euery one that is proud and loftie, and vpon euery one that is lifted vp, and he shalbe brought low;

13  And vpon all the Cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted vp; and vpon all the okes of Bashan,

14  And vpon all the high mountaines, and vpon all the hilles that are lifted vp,

15  And vpon euery high tower, and vpon euery fenced wall,

16  And vpon all the ships of Tarshish, and vpon all pleasant pictures.

17  And the loftinesse of man shall be bowed downe, and the hautinesse of men shalbe made low: and the Lord alone shalbe exalted in that day.

18  And the idoles hee shall vtterly abolish.

19  And they shall goe into the holes of the rocks, and into the caues of the earth for feare of the Lord, and for the glory of his Maiestie; when hee ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

20  In that day a man shall cast his idoles of siluer, and his idoles of golde which they made each one for himselfe to worship, to the moules and to the battes:

21  To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rockes, for feare of the Lord, and for the glorie of his Maiestie; when hee ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

22  Cease ye from man whose breath is in his nostrels: for wherein is hee to be accounted of?
