The Spirit(A) of the Lord will rest on him—
    the Spirit of wisdom(B) and of understanding,
    the Spirit of counsel and of might,(C)
    the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord
and he will delight in the fear(D) of the Lord.

He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes,(E)
    or decide by what he hears with his ears;(F)
but with righteousness(G) he will judge the needy,(H)
    with justice(I) he will give decisions for the poor(J) of the earth.
He will strike(K) the earth with the rod of his mouth;(L)
    with the breath(M) of his lips he will slay the wicked.(N)

And the 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 shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the Lord: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:

But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth: with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
