People From Many Nations Will Worship at Mount Zion

Here is a vision that Isaiah, the son of Amoz, saw about Judah and Jerusalem.

In the last days

the mountain where the Lord’s temple is located will be famous.
    It will be the highest mountain of all.
It will be raised above the hills.
    All the nations will go to it.

People from many nations will go there. They will say,

“Come. Let us go up to the Lord’s mountain.
    Let’s go to the temple of Jacob’s God.
He will teach us how we should live.
    Then we will live the way he wants us to.”
The law of the Lord will be taught at Zion.
    His message will go out from Jerusalem.
He will judge between the nations.
    He’ll settle problems among many of them.
They will hammer their swords into plows.
    They’ll hammer their spears into pruning tools.
Nations will not go to war against one another.
    They won’t even train to fight anymore.

People of Jacob, come.
    Let us live the way the Lord has taught us to.

23 Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them. We will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. The words you hear me say are not my own. They belong to the Father who sent me.

25 “I have spoken all these things while I am still with you. 26 But the Father will send the Friend in my name to help you. The Friend is the Holy Spirit. He will teach you all things. He will remind you of everything I have said to you. 27 I leave my peace with you. I give my peace to you. I do not give it to you as the world does. Do not let your hearts be troubled. And do not be afraid.

Jesus Heals Sick People

23 Jesus went all over Galilee. There he taught in the synagogues. He preached the good news of God’s kingdom. He healed every illness and sickness the people had. 24 News about him spread all over Syria. People brought to him all who were ill with different kinds of sicknesses. Some were suffering great pain. Others were controlled by demons. Some were shaking wildly. Others couldn’t move at all. And Jesus healed all of them. 25 Large crowds followed him. People came from Galilee, from the area known as the Ten Cities, and from Jerusalem and Judea. Others came from the area across the Jordan River.

Jesus Teaches the Disciples and Crowds

Jesus saw the crowds. So he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him. Then he began to teach them.

Jesus Gives Blessings

He said,

“Blessed are those who are spiritually needy.
    The kingdom of heaven belongs to them.
Blessed are those who are sad.
    They will be comforted.
Blessed are those who are humble.
    They will be given the earth.
Blessed are those who are hungry and thirsty for what is right.
    They will be filled.
Blessed are those who show mercy.
    They will be shown mercy.
Blessed are those whose hearts are pure.
    They will see God.
Blessed are those who make peace.
    They will be called children of God.
