Isaiah 2

1. The outcome* that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw regarding Judea and Jerusalem.

2. It shall come to pass*
that in the Final Days
the mountain abode of Maryah shall be established
at the top of the mountain,
higher than any heights,
and He shall be hallowed by all the nations.
3. And a multitude of nations shall go forth and declare,
"Let us climb the mountain of Maryah,
to the house of Jacob's Allaha;
we shall learn His ways
and walk in His paths,
because out of Zion shall emerge the Law
and the Revelation* of Maryah from Jerusalem.
4. And He shall judge between the nations,
and He shall admonish the great nations afar;
they shall turn their swords into plowshares
and their spears into pruning forks;
neither shall one nation take up the sword against another,
nor shall they learn how to make war again.
5. Those of the House of Jacob
shall again walk in the light of Maryah.
6. Because you forgave your people, the House of Jacob,
as they were filled with those that were hardened,*
who behaved like the Philistines,
and who raised many foreign children.
7. Their land became full of silver and gold,
and there is no bottom to their treasures,
and their land became full of horses,
and there is no end in sight to their chariots.
8. But their land became full of idols,
as they worshipped what their hands created
and what their fingers made.
9. And the human being grew soft,
and the man became numb,
but they did not forgive [one another.]
10. They bore into the rock
and burrowed* into the sand,
from the fear of Maryah
and from His imminent assumption.*
11. The human being's high-gazing eyes shall be lowered,*
and the man's stature* shall be diminished,*
and on that Day Maryah alone shall have dominion.
12. Because the Day of Maryah
will be upon everyone who is puffed up and haughty,
and upon everyone who is arrogant* and pampered.
13. And upon all the cedars of Lebanon
that grow tall and rise above,
and upon all the chestnuts of Bashan.
14. And upon all the tall mountains
and the highland hills.
15. And upon all the high towers
and all the imposing walls.
16. And upon all the ships of Tarshish
and the boats of pleasure.
17. And the human being's pride* became softened,
and the man's stature was subdued,*
and Maryah alone shall reign on that Day.*
18. And idol worship shall be abandoned entirely.*
19. And they will enter into the caves of rock
and the sand pits of the earth,
from the fear of Maryah
and from His imminent assumption,
when He rises to clutch the earth [in His hand.]*
20. On that Day people will cast away
the idols of gold and silver,
which they made to worship the emptiness
and the flying serpents.
21. So as they could enter the caves of rock
and the crevices of stone,
from the fear of Maryah
and His imminent assumption,*
22. So quit worshipping the human being
while the breath is in his nostrils,
because what is he anyway?*
