Isaiah 11:1–9

The Branch From Jesse

11 A shootv will come up from the stumpw of Jesse;x

from his roots a Branchy will bear fruit.z

The Spirita of the Lord will rest on him—

the Spirit of wisdomb and of understanding,

the Spirit of counsel and of might,c

the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord

and he will delight in the feard of the Lord.

He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes,e

or decide by what he hears with his ears;f

but with righteousnessg he will judge the needy,h

with justicei he will give decisions for the poorj of the earth.

He will strikek the earth with the rod of his mouth;l

with the breathm of his lips he will slay the wicked.n

Righteousness will be his belto

and faithfulnessp the sash around his waist.q

The wolf will live with the lamb,r

the leopard will lie down with the goat,

the calf and the lion and the yearlinga together;

and a little child will lead them.

The cow will feed with the bear,

their young will lie down together,

and the lion will eat straw like the ox.s

The infantt will play near the cobra’s den,

the young child will put its hand into the viper’su nest.

They will neither harm nor destroyv

on all my holy mountain,w

for the earthx will be filled with the knowledgey of the Lord

as the waters cover the sea.
