And he > shall judge among the nations, and shall decide for many people; and > they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into > pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, nor > shall they learn war any more. O house of Jacob, come, and let us walk > in the light of the Lord."
