Isaiah 2:5-11

A message to ancient Israel that applies to our nation as well:

Come, house of Jacob, and let us walk in the light of the Lord. For You have abandoned Your people, the house of Jacob, because they are filled with influences from the east, and they are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they strike bargains with the children of foreigners.

Their land has also been filled with silver and gold and there is no end to their treasures. Their land has also been filled with horses and there is no end to their chariots. Their land has also been filled with idols; they worship the work of their hands, that which their fingers have made.

So the common man has been humbled and the man of importance has been abased, but do not forgive them. Enter the rock and hide in the dust from the terror of the Lord and from the splendor of His majesty.

The proud look of man will be abased and the loftiness of man will be humbled, and the Lord alone will be exalted in that day.
