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 and 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. 10 Then in that day The anations will resort to the broot of Jesse, Who will stand as a csignal for the peoples; And His dresting place will be glorious. 11 Then it will happen on that day that the Lord Will again recover the second time with His hand The aremnant of His people, who will remain, From bAssyria, cEgypt, Pathros, Cush, dElam, Shinar, Hamath, And from the eislands of the sea. 12 And He will lift up a astandard for the nations And bassemble the banished ones of Israel, And will gather the dispersed of Judah From the four corners of the earth. 13 Then the ajealousy of Ephraim will depart, And those who harass Judah will be cut off; Ephraim will not be jealous of Judah, And Judah will not harass Ephraim. 14 They will aswoop down on the slopes of the Philistines on the bwest; Together they will cplunder the sons of the east; They will possess dEdom and eMoab, And the sons of Ammon will be subject to them. 15 And the Lord will autterly destroy The tongue of the Sea of Egypt; And He will bwave His hand over the cRiver With His scorching wind; And He will strike it into seven streams And make men walk over dry-shod. 16 And there will be a ahighway from Assyria For the bremnant of His people who will be left, Just as there was for Israel In cthe day that they came up out of the land of Egypt.
