Righteous Reign 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 the Lord will rest on Him,
The spirit of (F)wisdom and understanding,
The spirit of counsel and (G)strength,
The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.
And He will delight in the fear of the Lord,
And He will not judge by what His eyes (H)see,
Nor make a decision by what His ears hear;
But with (I)righteousness He will judge the (J)poor,
And decide with fairness 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 slay the wicked.
Also (N)righteousness will be the belt about His loins,
And (O)faithfulness the belt about His waist.

For He grew up before Him like a (A)tender [a]shoot,
And like a root out of parched ground;
He has (B)no stately form or majesty
That we should look upon Him,
Nor appearance that we should [b]be attracted to Him.

12 Then say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, “Behold, a man whose name is [a](A)Branch, for He will [b](B)branch out from where He is; and He will (C)build the temple of the Lord. 13 Yes, it is He who will build the temple of the Lord, and He who will (D)bear the honor and sit and (E)rule on His throne. Thus, He will be a (F)priest on His throne, and the counsel of peace will be between the two [c]offices.”’
