Isaiah 11:1-10 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
The Peaceful Kingdom
11 There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse,
He shall not judge by what his eyes see,
6 The wolf shall dwell with the lamb,
Return of the Remnant of Israel and Judah
10 In that day the root of Jesse shall stand as an ensign to the peoples; him shall the nations seek, and his dwellings shall be glorious.
