Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 2:3 - many peoples will come and say, "Come, let us go up to the LORD's mountain, to the temple of the God of Jacob, so he can teach us his requirements, and we can follow his standards."

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 2:10 - Go up into the rocky cliffs, hide in the ground. Get away from the dreadful judgment of the LORD, from his royal splendor!

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 2:22 - Stop trusting in human beings, whose life's breath is in their nostrils. For why should they be given special consideration?
