Holman Christian Standard Bible
Reign of the Davidic King
11 Then a shoot will grow from the stump of Jesse,(A)
and a branch(B) from his roots will bear fruit.
2 The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him(C)—
a Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
a Spirit of counsel and strength,
a Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.
3 His delight will be in the fear of the Lord.
He will not judge
by what He sees with His eyes,(D)
He will not execute justice
by what He hears with His ears,
4 but He will judge the poor righteously(E)
and execute justice for the oppressed of the land.
He will strike the land
with discipline[a] from His mouth,(F)
and He will kill the wicked(G)
with a command[b] from His lips.(H)
5 Righteousness will be a belt around His loins;(I)
faithfulness will be a belt around His waist.(J)
6 The wolf will live with the lamb,(K)
and the leopard will lie down with the goat.
The calf, the young lion, and the fatling will be together,
and a child will lead them.
7 The cow and the bear will graze,
their young ones will lie down together,
and the lion will eat straw like the ox.
8 An infant will play beside the cobra’s pit,
and a toddler will put his hand into a snake’s den.
9 None will harm or destroy another
on My entire holy mountain,
for the land will be as full
of the knowledge of the Lord
as the sea is filled with water.(L)
