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.
6 qThe wolf also shall dwell with the lamb,
And rthe leopard shall lie down with the kid;
And the calf and rrthe young lion and the fatling together;
And a little child shall lead them.
Their young ones shall lie down together:
8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of ssthe asp,
And the weaned child shall put his hand on the ||cockatrice’ den.
vFor the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord,
As the waters cover the sea.
Which shall stand for zan ensign of the people;
To it shall the Gentiles seek:
11 And it shall come to pass win that day,
That the Lord shall set his hand again the second time
To recover the remnant of his people,
And shall assemble kthe outcasts of Israel,
From the four †corners of the earth.
13 nThe envy also of Ephraim shall depart,
And the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off:
Ephraim shall not envy Judah,
And Judah shall not vex Ephraim.
They shall spoil †them of the east together:
And shall smite it in the seven streams,
dWhich shall be left, from Assyria;
eLike as it was to Israel
In the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.
