What does Isaiah 2:19 mean?

The literary structure of Isaiah's writing in this chapter brings him back to repeat the idea of Isaiah 2:10. On the day of the Lord (Ezekiel 30:3; Obadiah 1:15; Acts 2:20; 2 Peter 3:10), His judgment will fall on Israel for her unfaithfulness to Him. Those who have refused to live in God's ways (Isaiah 2:5) will hide in the darkness to try to escape the terror of His light and the splendor of His perfect majesty (Revelation 6:15–17). God's judgment will find them; they will be exposed and the worthlessness of their idols will be obvious to everyone.
