Isaiah 2:11-17

11-17People with a big head are headed for a fall,

pretentious egos brought down a peg.

It's God alone at front-and-center

on the Day we're talking about,

The Day that God-of-the-Angel-Armies

is matched against all big-talking rivals,

against all swaggering big names;

Against all giant sequoias

hugely towering,

and against the expansive chestnut;

Against Kilimanjaro and Annapurna,

against the ranges of Alps and Andes;

Against every soaring skyscraper,

against all proud obelisks and statues;

Against ocean-going luxury liners,

against elegant three-masted schooners.

The swelled big heads will be punctured bladders,

the pretentious egos brought down to earth,

Leaving God alone at front-and-center

on the Day we're talking about.

18And all those sticks and stones

dressed up to look like gods

will be gone for good.
