2 dThe 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 of the fear of the Lord.
And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes,
Nor decide by the hearing of His ears;
4 But ewith righteousness He shall judge the poor,
And decide with equity for the meek of the earth;
He shall fstrike the earth with the rod of His mouth,
And with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked.
And faithfulness the belt of His waist.
6 “The gwolf also shall dwell with the lamb,
The leopard shall lie down with the young goat,
The calf and the young lion and the fatling together;
And a little child shall lead them.
Their young ones shall lie down together;
And the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
And the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper’s den.
9 hThey shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain,
For ithe earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord
As the waters cover the sea.
Who shall stand as a lbanner to the people;
For the mGentiles shall seek Him,
And His resting place shall be glorious.”
That the Lord shall set His hand again the second time
To recover the remnant of His people who are left,
nFrom Assyria and Egypt,
From Pathros and Cush,
From Elam and Shinar,
From Hamath and the 4islands of the sea.
And will 5assemble the outcasts of Israel,
And gather together othe dispersed of Judah
From the four 6corners of the earth.
13 Also pthe envy of Ephraim shall depart,
And the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off;
Ephraim shall not envy Judah,
And Judah shall not harass Ephraim.
Together they shall plunder the 7people of the East;
qThey shall lay their hand on Edom and Moab;
And the people of Ammon shall obey them.
With His mighty wind He will shake His fist over 9the River,
And strike it in the seven streams,
And make men cross over 1dryshod.
16 sThere will be a highway for the remnant of His people
Who will be left from Assyria,
tAs it was for Israel
In the day that he came up from the land of Egypt.
