Isaiah 11:1–9

Righteous Reign of the Branch

1 Then a ashoot will spring from the bstem of Jesse,

And a cbranch from dhis roots will bear fruit.

2 The aSpirit of the Lord will rest on Him,

The spirit of bwisdom and understanding,

The spirit of counsel and cstrength,

The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.

3 And He will delight in the fear of the Lord,

And He will not judge by what His eyes asee,

Nor make a decision by what His ears hear;

4 But with arighteousness He will judge the bpoor,

And decide with fairness for the cafflicted of the earth;

And He will strike the earth with the drod of His mouth,

And with the ebreath of His lips He will slay the wicked.

5 Also arighteousness will be the belt about His loins,

And bfaithfulness the belt about His waist.

6 And the awolf will dwell with the lamb,

And the leopard will lie down with the young goat,

And the calf and the young lion 1and the fatling together;

And a little boy will lead them.

7 Also the cow and the bear will graze,

Their young will lie down together,

And the alion will eat straw like the ox.

8 The nursing child will play by the hole of the cobra,

And the weaned child will put his hand on the viper’s den.

9 They will anot hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain,

For the bearth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord

As the waters cover the sea.
