“The Mountain Of The Lord,” Isaiah 2:1) The Word That Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. 2) And It Shall Come To Pass In The Last Days, That The Mountain Of The Lord’s House Shall Be Established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. Acts 2:17. 3) And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up To The Mountain Of The Lord, In The House Of The God Of Jacob; And He Will Teach Us Of His Ways, And We Will Walk In His Paths: For Out Of Zion Shall Go Forth The Law, And The Word Of The Lord From Jerusalem. 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 pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. 5) Oh House of Jacob, Come Ye, And Let Us Walk In The Light Of The Lord. Acts 26:23.
Nelson’s Compact Bible Commentary – v1, 2, Some have interpreted the phrase in the latter days as pointing to the new epoch (a distinctive period) initiated by The Saving Work Of Christ And The Coming Of The Holy Spirit At Pentecost (see Acts 2:17). Just as The Lord’s House (The Temple) Was A Type Of The Heavenly Sanctuary (Hebrews 9:24), so presumably The Mountain (Mount Zion) was a copy of A Heavenly Reality (Hebrews 9:23, 24; 12:22-24). v3, By quoting the people’s words, let us go up to The Mountain Of The Lord, Isaiah vividly depicts their regenerated hearts, sin the unregenerate do not seek God (see Romans 3:11). v4, Plowshares probably means “hoes.” One day there will be an end to all weapons, and to all warfare because of The Reign Of The Prince Of Peace (9:6), The Savior King Whose Name Is Jesus. v5, Isaiah includes himself with the godly remnant: let us walk. Even though they could not see the Glorious Future of Zion, They continued to place their Faith In God and Obey His Law. Light is a metaphor (comparison) For God’s Law.
Quest Study Bible – “Last Days,” v2, Some believe that The Last Days refers to a future time of God’s Judgment (The Day Of The Lord) followed By Christ’s Direct Rule From Jerusalem. Others believe that The Last Days Began At The Time Of Christ And His Rule In Human Hearts And Will Continue Until Christ’s Second Coming.
Matthew Henry’s Concise Bible Commentary – v1-5, The calling of the Gentiles, The Spread of The Gospel and that far more extensive preaching of it (is) yet to come, are foretold. Let Christians strengthen one another, and support one another. It Is God Who Teaches His People By His Word And Spirit. Christ Promotes Peace, As Well Holiness. If all men were Real Christians, there could be no war; but nothing answering to these expressions has yet taken place on the earth. Whatever others do, let us walk In The Light Of This Peace. Let us remember that when True Religion Flourishes, men delight in Going Up To The House Of The Lord, And In Urging Others To Accompany Them.
