The Judgments of the Branch

11 Then a (A)shoot will spring from the (B)stem of Jesse,
And a (C)branch from (D)his roots will bear fruit.
The (E)Spirit of Yahweh will rest on Him,
The spirit of (F)wisdom and understanding,
The spirit of counsel and (G)might,
The spirit of knowledge and the fear of Yahweh.
And He will delight in the fear of Yahweh,
And He will not judge by what His eyes (H)see,
Nor render a decision by what His ears hear;
But with (I)righteousness He will judge the (J)poor,
And decide with uprightness for the (K)afflicted of the earth;
And He will strike the earth with the (L)rod of His mouth,
And with the (M)breath of His lips He will put the wicked to death.
Also (N)righteousness will be the belt about His loins,
And (O)faithfulness the belt about His waist.

And the (P)wolf will [a]dwell with the lamb,
And the leopard will lie down with the young goat,
And the calf and the young lion [b]and the fatling together;
And a young boy will lead them.
Also the cow and the bear will graze,
Their young will lie down together,
And the (Q)lion will eat straw like the ox.
And the nursing baby will play by the hole of the cobra,
And the weaned child will put his hand on the viper’s den.
They will (R)do no evil nor act corruptly in all My holy mountain,
For the (S)earth will be full of the knowledge of Yahweh
As the waters cover the sea.

A Remnant Remains

10 Then it will be in that day,
That the (T)nations will seek the (U)root of Jesse,
Who will stand as a [c](V)standard for the peoples;
And His (W)resting place will be [d]glorious.

11 Then it will be in that day, that the Lord
Will again acquire the second time with His hand
The (X)remnant of His people, who will remain,
From (Y)Assyria, (Z)Egypt, Pathros, [e]Ethiopia, (AA)Elam, Shinar, Hamath,
And from the (AB)coastlands of the sea.
12 And He will lift up a (AC)standard for the nations
And (AD)assemble the banished ones of Israel,
And will gather the scattered of Judah
From the four corners of the earth.
13 Then the (AE)jealousy of Ephraim will depart,
And those who assail Judah will be cut off;
Ephraim will not be jealous of Judah,
And Judah will not assail Ephraim.
14 And they will (AF)swoop down on the slopes of the Philistines on the (AG)west;
Together they will (AH)plunder the sons of the east;
[f]They will stretch out their hands over (AI)Edom and (AJ)Moab,
And the sons of Ammon [g]will obey them.
15 And Yahweh will (AK)devote to destruction
The tongue of the [h]Sea of Egypt;
And He will (AL)wave His hand over the [i](AM)River
With His scorching wind;
And He will strike it into seven streams
And make men walk over [j]dry-shod.
16 And there will be a (AN)highway from Assyria
For the (AO)remnant of His people who will remain,
Just as there was for Israel
In (AP)the day that they came up out of the land of Egypt.
