dc.description.abstract The vision in Isaiah 2:1–5 of nations streaming to Zion in the days to come to receive Yahweh’s Torah is one of the best-known texts in the entire Book of Isaiah. The chapter begins with the description of Yahweh, the universal Judge, who issues effective decrees and exercises authority over the earth from atop Mount Zion. The standards for the nations’ relationships amongst themselves are set by Yahweh. The nations will learn peace and practice peace. The question of Israel’s relationship to the nations is addressed in many texts in the Old Testament, but they do not offer a uniform opinion on this matter. The Book of Isaiah goes a step further than other texts: the Torah is also valid for the other nations. In this article the focus will be on Isaiah 2:1–5. The relationship of this text with other parts of the Book of Isaiah will also be addressed. en
