Isaiah 2:12-14

Context

2:12 Indeed, the Lord who commands armies has planned a day of judgment, 1 

for 2  all the high and mighty,

for all who are proud – they will be humiliated;

2:13 for all the cedars of Lebanon,

that are so high and mighty,

for all the oaks of Bashan; 3 

2:14 for all the tall mountains,

for all the high hills, 4 

1 tn Heb “indeed [or “for”] the Lord who commands armies [traditionally, the Lord of hosts] has a day.”

2 tn Or “against” (NAB, NASB, NRSV).

3 sn The cedars of Lebanon and oaks of Bashan were well-known for their size and prominence. They make apt symbols here for powerful men who think of themselves as prominent and secure.

4 sn The high mountains and hills symbolize the apparent security of proud men, as do the high tower and fortified wall of v. 15.
