Text: 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:Â Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made:Â And the mean man boweth down, and the great man humbleth himself: therefore forgive them not.Â Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of theÂ Lord, and for the glory of his majesty.Â The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and theÂ LordÂ alone shall be exalted in that day.Â For the day of theÂ LordÂ 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:Â And upon all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan,Â And upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up,Â And upon every high tower, and upon every fenced wall,Â And upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all pleasant pictures.Â And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and theÂ LordÂ alone shall be exalted in that day.Â And the idols he shall utterly abolish.Â And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of theÂ Lord, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.Â 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;Â To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of theÂ Lord, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. (Isaiah 2:7-21)
Tweet: In the coming Day of the Lord, the lofty will be brought low. In their quivering fear of God, they will quickly fling to the ground their false gods and fortunes of gold.
Text: Human pride will be humbled, and human arrogance will be brought down. Only the Lord will be exalted on that day of judgment. Idols will completely disappear. When the Lord rises to shake the earth, his enemies will crawl into holes in the ground. They will hide in caves in the rocks from the terror of the Lord and the glory of his majesty. On that day of judgment they will abandon the gold and silver idols they made for themselves to worship. They will leave their gods to the rodents and bats, while they crawl away into caverns and hide among the jagged rocks in the cliffs. They will try to escape the terror of the Lord and the glory of his majesty as he rises to
shake the earth. Donâ€™t put your trust in mere humans. They are as frail as breath. What good are they? (Isaiah 2:17-22 NLT)
