2 And fthe spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him,
gThe spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The spirit of counsel and might,
The spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord;
3 And shall make him of †quick understanding in the fear of the Lord:
Neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
4 But kwith righteousness shall he judge the poor,
And ||reprove with equity for the meek of the earth:
And he shall lsmite the earth with the rod of his mouth,
And faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
