The Peaceful Kingdom

11 A shoot shall come out from the stump of Jesse,
    and a branch shall grow[a] out of his roots.(A)
The spirit of the Lord shall rest on him,
    the spirit of wisdom and understanding,
    the spirit of counsel and might,
    the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.(B)
His delight shall be in the fear of the Lord.

He shall not judge by what his eyes see
    or decide by what his ears hear,(C)
but with righteousness he shall judge for the poor
    and decide with equity for the oppressed of the earth;
he shall strike the earth with the rod of his mouth,
    and with the breath of his lips he shall kill the wicked.(D)
Righteousness shall be the belt around his waist
    and faithfulness the belt around his loins.(E)
