Isaiah 111599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
11 1 Christ born of the root of Jesse. 2 His virtues and kingdom. 6 The fruits of the Gospel. 10 The calling of the Gentiles.
1 But there shall come a [a]rod forth of the stock of Jesse, and a grass shall grow out of his roots.
2 And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him: the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and strength, the Spirit of knowledge, and of the fear of the Lord,
3 And shall make him prudent in the fear of the Lord: for he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove by the hearing of his ears.
4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and with equity shall he reprove for the meek of the earth: and he shall [b]smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
5 And justice shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
6 The [c]wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie with the kid, and the calf, and the lion, and the fat beast together, and a little child shall lead them.
7 And the cow and the bear shall feed: their young ones shall lie together: and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock.
8 And the sucking child shall play upon the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand upon the cockatrice hole.
9 Then shall none hurt nor destroy in all the mountain of mine holiness: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as [d]the waters that cover the sea.
11 And in the same day shall the Lord stretch out his hand [g]again the second time, to possess the remnant of his people, (which shall be left) of Assyria, and of Egypt, and of Pathros, and of Ethiopia, and of Elam, and of Shinar, and of Hamath, and of the isles of the sea.
12 And he shall set up a sign to the nations, and assemble the dispersed of Israel, and gather the scattered of Judah from the four corners of the world.
13 The hatred also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy [h]Judah, neither shall Judah vex Ephraim:
14 But they shall flee upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the West: they shall spoil them of the East together: Edom and Moab shall be the stretching out of their hands, and the children of Ammon in their obedience.
15 The Lord also shall utterly destroy the [i]tongue of the Egyptian’s sea, and with his mighty wind shall lift up his hand [j]over the river, and shall smite him in his seven streams, and cause men to walk therein with shoes.
16 And there shall be a path to the remnant of his people which are left of Assyria, like as it was unto Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.
