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 angela h = "They will actually take their weapons and make farming tools out of them. Their will be no need for weapons."
2 Yaakov ben Chaim Tzvi = "This speaks of the Jewish Messiah who will judge nations and create peace on earth. This is one of the "prerequisites" for us to know who the Messiah is. The name of the person is not important, only the task he shall fulfill. Whoever brings peace on earth will be the one who can claim to be the "Messiah". Until that time comes, anyone claiming to be the Messiah but not actually fulfilling the role of Messiah is an impostor according to Isaiah's own words."
3 angela h = "We Christians believe that this is Jesus as described in chapters 19-22 in the book of Revelation. "
4 angela h = "1 John 1:5-7 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin."
5 angela h = "We do well to remember that any good thing we have comes from God. He gives to us as He sees fit. He gives us the very breath in our bodies."
6 Yaakov ben Chaim Tzvi = "An idol isn't only something you worship, it's something/someone in which you put your faith and trust in which is not the creator. Some religions use silver and gold statues as "representations" of the God they worship. Everyone today recognizes that these statues aren't "God" but when they are used as a medium, a way to connect with God, they still fall under the prohibition of idolatry according to Judaism. Bowing down to statues and asking for their intervention is idol worship. The prophet Isaiah says that in the end days, people will realize how foolish they were to believe in these trinkets and even though they are made of silver and gold, they will be so repugnant they will throw these "precious" idols to the moles and bats."
