Isaiah 2Names of God Bible (NOG)

The Lord Will Teach the Nations

This is the message which Isaiah, son of Amoz, saw about Judah and Jerusalem.

In the last days the mountain of Yahweh’s house
    will be established as the highest of the mountains
        and raised above the hills.
            All the nations will stream to it.
Then many people will come and say,
    “Let’s go to the mountain of Yahweh,
        to the house of the Elohim of Jacob.
            He will teach us his ways so that we may live by them.”
    The teachings will go out from Zion.
    The word of Yahweh will go out from Jerusalem.
Then he will judge disputes between nations
    and settle arguments between many people.
    They will hammer their swords into plowblades
        and their spears into pruning shears.
    Nations will never fight against each other,
        and they will never train for war again.
Come, descendants of Jacob,
    let’s live in the light of Yahweh.

Israel’s Sins

Yahweh, you have abandoned your people, the descendants of Jacob,
    because they are filled with Eastern influences.
        They are fortunetellers like the Philistines,
            and they make deals with foreigners.
Their land is filled with silver and gold,
    and there is no end to their treasures.
    Their land is filled with horses,
        and there is no end to their chariots.
Their land is filled with idols,
    and they worship what their hands have shaped
        and what their fingers have molded.
People will be brought down. Everyone will be humbled.
    Do not forgive them.
10 Go in among the rocks and hide underground
    because of Yahweh’s terrifying presence
        and the honor of his majesty.
11 The eyes of arrogant people will be humbled.
    High and mighty people will be brought down.
    On that day Yahweh alone will be honored.

The Day of the Lord’s Judgment

12 Yahweh Tsebaoth will have his day
    against all who are arrogant and conceited
        and all who are proud of themselves (they will be humbled),
13 against all the towering and mighty cedars of Lebanon
    and all the oaks of Bashan,
14 against all the high mountains
    and all the lofty hills,
15 against every high tower
    and every fortified wall,
16 against all the large ships of Tarshish
    and all the beautiful boats.

17 Then arrogant people will be brought down,
    and high and mighty people will be humbled.
        On that day Yahweh alone will be honored.
18 Then idols will disappear completely.
19 People will go into caves in the rocks
    and into holes in the ground
        because of Yahweh’s terrifying presence
            and the honor of his majesty
                when he rises to terrify the earth.
20 On that day people will throw to the moles and the bats
    the silver and gold idols that they made
        for themselves to worship.
21 They will go into caves in the rocks
    and into cracks in the cliffs
        because of Yahweh’s terrifying presence
            and the honor of his majesty
                when he rises to terrify the earth.

22 Stop trusting people.
    Their life is in their nostrils.
        How can they be worth anything?
