THE MESSAGE VERSION AMPLIFIED NEW LIVING TRANSLATION
1-5 The Message Isaiah got regarding
Judah and Jerusalem: There's
a day coming
when the mountain of God's House
Will be The Mountain—
solid, towering over all mountains.
All nations will river toward it,
people from
all over set out for it.
They'll say, "Come,
let's climb God's Mountain,
go to the House of the God
of Jacob.
He'll show us the way he works
so we can live
the way we're made."
Zion's the source
of the revelation.
God's Message comes from
Jerusalem.

He'll settle things fairly
between nations.
He'll make things
right between many peoples.
They'll turn their swords
into shovels, their spears into hoes.
No more will nation fight nation;
they won't play war anymore.

Come, family of Jacob,
let's live in the light of God.

3And many people shall come and say,
Come, let us go up to the mountain
of the Lord, to the house
of the God of Jacob,
that He may teach us
His ways and that we may walk
in His paths.
For out of Zion
shall go forth the law
and instruction,
and the word of the Lord
from Jerusalem.

4And He shall judge
between the nations
and shall decide [disputes]
for many peoples;
and they shall beat their swords
into plowshares and their spears
into pruning hooks.
Nation shall not
lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they
learn war any more.(A)

5O house of Jacob,
come, let us walk
in the light of the Lord.

Quix Commentary

1. People from MANY nations.
Not all—because we know from
Other Scripture that those who
Do NOT come, get no rain.

2. Let us go UP TO
--Mt Sinai?
NO!
--The mountains of Lebanon?
NO!
--Mt Everest?
NO!
--Mt of Olives?
Not by that name anyway!
--Mt Ararat?
NO!
The Mountain of The Lord!

ALL other mountains have been
Brought low.

Clearly, Almighty God is making a
HUGE statement as THE SOURCE;
--THE SUPREME SOURCE;
--THE ONLY REAL SOURCE;
--THE ONLY TRULY HOLY, LOFTY SOURCE;
--THE HIGHEST SOURCE.

THE MOUNTAIN OF THE LORD;
KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS!
WHO ALONE IS THE SOURCE OF
--ALL TRUTH;
--ALL GOOD;
--ALL POWER;
--ALL WISDOM;
--ALL RIGHTEOUSNESS;
--ALL LOVE;
--ALL JUSTICE;
--ALL BEAUTY;
--ALL PEACE;
--ALL HOPE;
--ALL JOY;
--ALL FAITH;
--ALL IN ALL!

3. To the house of
Who’s God?

--the global community’s?
NO!
--Ishmael’s?
NO!
--India’s?
NO!
--China’s?
NO!
--The International Christian Community’s?
NO! Functionally, yes as Christ is our Lord.
But that’s not the label God chooses here.

THE HOUSE OF JACOB’S GOD!

Why such an emphasis?

Evidently God still has a fondness for
Blessing HIS BUDDY Abraham’s chosen
Blood offspring.

JACOB’S GOD. Abraham, Isaac and Jacob’s GOD!

4. AND THERE
JACOB’S GOD WILL TEACH US HIS WAYS!

BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD!

His laws will be inscribed on our hearts! YEA!

5. And we WILL WALK IN HIS PATHS!
Gone will be the waywardness; doublemindedness;
Doing that which we would not and avoiding that
Our better selves would prefer we did.
Single-mindedly we will joyfully serve The Lord!

6. For The Lord’s teaching will go out from where?
--FROM ZION! BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL ZION!

--not from New York!
--NOT from Harvard! (boy was that a long time ago!)
--Not from Beijing, Brasilia, London, CNN Center,
--FROM ZION—HIS FAVORITE’S TURF! PRAISE GOD!

7. HIS WORD WILL GO OUT FROM JERUSALEM!

David’s city!
NOT Mecca, nor Bombay!
David’s city. God’s chosen City of God’s chosen people!

Somehow, of all creation . . . the crucial address will be

JERUSALEM! JERUSALEM! JERUSALEM!
LIFT UP YOUR GATES AND SING!

8. THE LORD will MEDIATE BETWEEN NATIONS.

--NOT the globalists, socialists, communists who’ve been wiped
From the planet AND from memory.
--NOT the UN!
--NOT flesh-driven, ego driven, greed driven diplomats.
--NOT international conglomerates.

BUT THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY! YEA GOD!

9. AND WILL SETTLE INTERNATIONAL DISPUTES.

Interesting.
One might have conjectured that after The Great Tribulation,
Given Christ setting up HIS RULE . . . there would be no
International disputes. But, evidently there will be.

YET THE KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS WILL
SETTLE ALL SUCH! YEA!

No quibbling. No argument. No end runs around agreements.
No second guessing His fairness; His Wisdom; His authority.
Settled. Done. Recognized as all together good. Fini.

10. HAMMER SWORDS INTO PLOWSHARES!

WHAT A LONGED FOR DAY THAT WILL BE!

PEACE, PEACE, TRUE PEACE, AT LAST
A THOUSAND YEARS OF PERFECT PEACE!

No fighting between nations at all.
No training for war at all.
How mind-bogglingly wonderful!

11. COME DESCENDANTS OF JACOB
LET US WALK IN THE LIGHT OF THE LORD.

Knock off the rebellion and waywardness.
DOABLE with His law written in their/our hearts.

LET US WALK IN THE LIGHT OF THE LORD!

BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD!
