The Book of Isaiah

 

Chapter 2

 

2:4 “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.

 

Who is the judge in verse 4 and what is the work of judging and rebuking?

 

Is there a difference between “nations” and “many people” in this verse?

 

What is the practical application of the remainder of the verse?

 

2:5 “O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.”

 

2:6-9 “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.”
