11 There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of lJesse,
and a branch from his roots shall bear fruit.
2 And mthe Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him,
the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
the Spirit of counsel and might,
the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.
or decide disputes by owhat his ears hear,
4 but pwith righteousness he shall judge the poor,
and decide with equity for the meek of the earth;
and he shall qstrike the earth with the rod of his mouth,
and tfaithfulness the belt of his loins.
6 uThe wolf shall dwell with the lamb,
and the leopard shall lie down with the young goat,
and the calf and the lion and the fattened calf together;
and a little child shall lead them.
their young shall lie down together;
and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
and the weaned child shall put his hand on the adder’s den.
9 uThey shall not hurt or destroy
in all vmy holy mountain;
wfor the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord
as the waters cover the sea.
11 aIn that day the Lord will extend his hand yet a second time to recover the remnant that remains of his people, bfrom Assyria, bfrom Egypt, from cPathros, from dCush,1 from eElam, from fShinar, from gHamath, and from hthe coastlands of the sea.
12 He will raise za signal for the nations
and will assemble ithe banished of Israel,
and gather the dispersed of Judah
from the four corners of the earth.
13 jThe jealousy of Ephraim shall depart,
and those who harass Judah shall be cut off;
Ephraim shall not be jealous of Judah,
and Judah shall not harass Ephraim.
14 kBut they shall swoop down on the shoulder of the Philistines in the west,
and together they shall plunder lthe people of the east.
and pthe Ammonites shall obey them.
15 And the Lord will utterly destroy2
qthe tongue of the Sea of Egypt,
with his scorching breath,4
and strike it into seven channels,
and he will lead people across in sandals.
16 And there will be sa highway from Assyria
for the remnant that remains of his people,
tas there was for Israel
when they came up from the land of Egypt.
Hebrew devote to destruction
That is, the Euphrates
I was ready to be found by those who did not seek me.
I said, “Here I am, here I am,”
to a nation that was not called by1 my name.
2 iI spread out my hands all the day
to a rebellious people,
who walk in a way that is not good,
following their own devices;
to my face continually,
jsacrificing in gardens
and making offerings on bricks;
and spend the night in secret places;
kwho eat pig’s flesh,
and broth of tainted meat is in their vessels;
do not come near me, for I am too holy for you.”
lThese are a smoke in my nostrils,
a fire that burns all the day.
6 Behold, mit is written before me:
n“I will not keep silent, but I will repay;
oI will indeed repay into their lap
7 both your iniquities pand your fathers’ iniquities together,
says the Lord;
qbecause they made offerings on the mountains
qand insulted me on the hills,
I will measure into their lap
payment for their former deeds.”2
r“As the new wine is found in the cluster,
and they say, ‘Do not destroy it,
for there is a blessing in it,’
so I will do for my servants’ sake,
sand not destroy them all.
9 tI will bring forth offspring from Jacob,
and from Judah possessors of my mountains;
my chosen shall possess it,
and my servants shall dwell there.
10 uSharon shall become a pasture for flocks,
and vthe Valley of Achor a place for herds to lie down,
for my people wwho have sought me.
11 But xyou who forsake the Lord,
who forget ymy holy mountain,
who zset a table for Fortune
and zfill cups of mixed wine for Destiny,
and all of you shall bow down to the slaughter,
abecause, when I called, you did not answer;
when I spoke, you did not listen,
bbut you did what was evil in my eyes
and chose what I did not delight in.”
“Behold, cmy servants shall eat,
but you shall be hungry;
behold, my servants shall drink,
but you shall be thirsty;
behold, my servants shall rejoice,
but you shall be put to shame;
14 behold, dmy servants shall sing for gladness of heart,
but you shall cry out for pain of heart
and shall wail for breaking of spirit.
and the Lord God will put you to death,
but his servants ghe will call by another name,
16 so that he who hblesses himself in the land
shall bless himself by hthe God of truth,
and he who takes an oath in the land
shall swear by ithe God of truth;
jbecause the former troubles are forgotten
and are hidden from my eyes.
17 “For behold, kI create new heavens
and a new earth,
and the former things shall not be remembered
or come into mind.
in that which I create;
for behold, lI create Jerusalem to be a joy,
and her people to be a gladness.
19 mI will rejoice in Jerusalem
and be glad in my people;
nno more shall be heard in it the sound of weeping
and the cry of distress.
an infant who lives but a few days,
or an old man who does not fill out his days,
for othe young man shall die a hundred years old,
and pthe sinner a hundred years old shall be accursed.
21 qThey shall build houses and inhabit them;
they shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit.
22 qThey shall not build and another inhabit;
they shall not plant and another eat;
rfor like the days of a tree shall the days of my people be,
and my chosen shall long enjoy3 the work of their hands.
23 sThey shall not labor in vain
for uthey shall be the offspring of the blessed of the Lord,
and their descendants with them.
24 vBefore they call I will answer;
wwhile they are yet speaking I will hear.
25 xThe wolf and the lamb shall graze together;
the lion shall eat straw like the ox,
and ydust shall be the serpent’s food.
zThey shall not hurt or destroy
in all my holy mountain,”
says the Lord.
Or that did not call upon
Or I will first measure their payment into their lap
Hebrew shall wear out
Or for sudden terror
