And it shall come to pass in the last of the days that the mountain of Jehovah shall be established because the Word of Jehovah shall be from Jerusalem (Isaiah 2:2-6). It treats of the restoration of all things through the New Church.
Jehovah alone shall be exalted in that day (Isaiah 2:11, 17).

(That He would destroy the vine, because it did not bring forth grapes, but wild grapes; I will bring it to desolation, the house to devastation; because they regard not the work of Jehovah (Isaiah 5:3-15).)
A curse upon them, because they call good evil and evil good, and put darkness for light and light for darkness, since they have rejected the law of Jehovah, and despised the saying of the Holy One of Israel. He shall roar against him in that day like the roaring of the sea; and if one look unto the land, behold darkness, anxiety, and the light shall be darkened in the ruins thereof (Isaiah 5:18-30).

In that day every place shall be for the brier and the thorn (Isaiah 7:23-24). The consummation.
What will ye do in the day of visitation and of devastation which shall come from far? to whom will ye flee for help? The devastation there is described by the pride of their own intelligence (Isaiah 10:3-19), further (Isaiah 10:23-34). And it is said that Jehovah bakes a consummation and decision in the whole earth (verse 23).
Howl ye; for the day of Jehovah is at hand, it will come as a devastation from Shaddai. Behold the day of Jehovah cometh, cruel with indignation and with wrath to lay thy land waste; and He shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of the heavens and their constellations shine not with their light, the sun is darkened at his rising, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine (Isaiah 13:6-10). Therefore I will shake heaven, and the earth will tremble in the indignation of Jehovah of Hosts, in the day of the wrath of anger (13:13). There it treats of the vastation of Babylon.
