Isaiah 2, swords into ploughshares, study war no more, the Day of the Lord

This famous messianic prophecy is duplicated in Micah 4. Micah was a contemporary of Isaiah. Isaiah was also the chief scribe and wrote down the chronicles for that time, such as part of Isaiah 36, which is duplicated in part of 2 Chronicles 32.

The symbol Schwerter zu Pflugscharen was the most important emblem of the German Democratic Republic’s opposition movement in the 1980s which finally lead to the “revolution” of 1989 and the German unification.

The bronze sculpture “Let Us Beat Our Swords into Ploughshares,” was created by Soviet artist Evgeny Vuchetich, and presented to the United Nations on 4 December 1959, by the Government of the USSR.

Or the lyrics as sung by Peter, Paul and Mary

I’m gonna lay down my sword and shield,
Down by the riverside
Down by the riverside
Down by the riverside
I’m gonna lay down my sword and shield,
Down by the riverside
Study war no more

I ain’t gonna study war no more
Ain’t gonna study war no more
Ain’t gonna study war no more
I ain’t gonna study war no more
Ain’t gonna study war no more
Ain’t gonna study war no more
