1 A shoot will spring up from the stock of Jesse
and a branch from its graft bear fruit.
2 The Spirit of Jehovah will rest upon him—the spirit of wisdom and of understanding,the spirit of counsel and of valor,the spirit of knowledgeand of the fear of Jehovah. 3 His intuition will be guidedby the fear of Jehovah;he will not judge by what his eyes see,nor establish proof by what his ears hear. 4 He will judge the poor with righteousness,and with equity arbitrate for the lowly in the land;he will smite the earth with the rod of his mouthand with the breath of his lips slay the wicked. 5 Righteousness will be as a band about his waist,faithfulness a girdle round his loins.
6 Then shall the wolf dwell among lambsand the leopard lie down with young goats;calves and young lions awill feeda together,and a youngster will lead them to pasture. 7 When a cow and bear browse,their young will rest together;the lion will eat straw like the ox. 8 A suckling infant will play near the adder’s den,and the toddler reach his handover the viper’s nest. 9 There shall be no harm or injury donethroughout my holy mountain,for the earth shall be filledwith the knowledge of Jehovahas the oceans are overspread with waters.
10 In that day the sprig of Jesse,who stands for an ensign to the peoples,shall be sought by the nations,and his rest shall be glorious. 11 In that day my Lord will again braiseb his handto reclaim the remnant of his peoplethose who shall be left out of Assyria,Egypt, Pathros, Cush, Elam, Shinar, Hamath,and the islands of the sea. 12 He will raise the ensign to the nationsand assemble the exiled of Israel;he will gather the scattered of Judahfrom the four directions of the earth.
13 Ephraim’s jealousy shall pass awayand the hostile ones of Judah be cut off;Ephraim will not envy Judah,nor Judah resent Ephraim. 14 But they will swoop on the Philistine flanktoward the west,and together plunder those to the east;they will take Edom and Moab at hand’s reach,and the Ammonites will obey them.
15 Jehovah will dry up the tongueof the Egyptian Sea cby his mighty wind;che will extend his hand over the Riverand smite it into seven streamsto provide a way on foot. 16 And there shall be a pathway out of Assyriafor the remnant of his people who shall be left,as there was for Israelwhen it came up from the land of Egypt.
