advent: prophetic readings 2

The prophet Isaiah | Cistine Chapel

The prophet Isaiah | Cistine Chapel

In days to come
the mountain of the Lord’s house

shall be established as the highest of the mountains,
and shall be raised above the hills;

all nations shall stream to it.
Many peoples 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 instruction,
and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

He shall judge between nations
and shall arbitrate for many peoples;

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.

|| Isaiah 2.2-4
