The Reign of Jesse’s Offspring(A)

11 There (B)shall come forth a [a]Rod from the [b]stem of (C)Jesse,
And (D)a Branch shall [c]grow out of his roots.
(E)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.

12 Then speak to him, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, saying:

“Behold, (A)the Man whose name is the (B)BRANCH!
From His place He shall [a]branch out,
(C)And He shall build the temple of the Lord;
13 Yes, He shall build the temple of the Lord.
He (D)shall bear the glory,
And shall sit and rule on His throne;
So (E)He shall be a priest on His throne,
And the counsel of peace shall be between [b]them both.” ’

26 But (A)you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, [a]as I said to you. 27 (B)My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. 28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. 29 (C)My Father, (D)who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. 30 (E)I and My Father are one.”

29 For whom (A)He foreknew, (B)He also predestined (C)to be conformed to the image of His Son, (D)that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also (E)called; whom He called, these He also (F)justified; and whom He justified, these He also (G)glorified.

God’s Everlasting Love

31 What then shall we say to these things? (H)If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 (I)He who did not spare His own Son, but (J)delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? (K)It is God who justifies. 34 (L)Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, (M)who is even at the right hand of God, (N)who also makes intercession for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written:

(O)“For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”

37 (P)Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor (Q)principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
