11 The Lord has given me a strong warning not to think like everyone else does. He said, 12 “Don’t call everything a conspiracy, like they do, and don’t live in dread of what frightens them. 13 Make the Lord of Heaven’s Armies holy in your life.He is the one you should fear.He is the one who should make you tremble. 14 He will keep you safe.But to Israel and Judah he will be a stone that makes people stumble, a rock that makes them fall.And for the people of Jerusalem he will be a trap and a snare.

Isaiah 2:6-8 NLT
6 For the Lord has rejected his people, the descendants of Jacob, because they have filled their land with practices from the East and with sorcerers, as the Philistines do.They have made alliances with pagans. 7 Israel is full of silver and gold; there is no end to its treasures.Their land is full of warhorses; there is no end to its chariots.
Isaiah 2:11-12, 14 NLT
11 Human pride will be brought down ,and human arrogance will be humbled.Only the Lord will be exalted on that day of judgment. 12 For the Lord of Heaven’s Armies has a day of reckoning.He will punish the proud and mighty and bring down everything that is exalted. 14 He will level all the high mountains and all the lofty hills.

Isaiah 8:20-22 NLT
20 Look to God’s instructions and teachings! People who contradict his word are completely in the dark. 21 They will go from one place to another, weary and hungry. And because they are hungry, they will rage and curse their king and their God. They will look up to heaven 22 and down at the earth, but wherever they look, there will be trouble and anguish and dark despair. They will be thrown out into the darkness.
Isaiah 9:1-5 NLT
1 Nevertheless, that time of darkness and despair will not go on forever. The land of Zebulun and Naphtali will be humbled, but there will be a time in the future when Galilee of the Gentiles, which lies along the road that runs between the Jordan and the sea, will be filled with glory. 2 The people who walk in darkness will see a great light.For those who live in a land of deep darkness, a light will shine. 3 You will enlarge the nation of Israel, and its people will rejoice.They will rejoice before you as people rejoice at the harvest and like warriors dividing the plunder. 4 For you will break the yoke of their slavery and lift the heavy burden from their shoulders.You will break the oppressor’s rod, just as you did when you destroyed the army of Midian. 5 The boots of the warrior and the uniforms bloodstained by war will all be burned.They will be fuel for the fire.
Isaiah 9:6-7 NLT
6 For a child is born to us, a son is given to us.The government will rest on his shoulders.And he will be called:Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 His government and its peace will never end.He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David for all eternity.The passionate commitment of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies will make this happen
