The Branch From David

11 Then a shoot will come forth out of the stem of Jesse,
and a branch will bear fruit out of His roots.[a]
The Ruach of Adonai will rest upon Him,
the Spirit of wisdom and insight,
the Spirit of counsel and might,
the Spirit of knowledge
    and of the fear of Adonai.[b]
His delight will be in the fear of Adonai.
He will not judge by what His eyes see,
nor decide by what His ears hear.
But with righteousness He will judge the poor,
    and decide with fairness for the poor of the land.
He will strike the land with the rod of His mouth,[c]
    and with the breath of His lips He will slay the wicked.
Also righteousness will be the belt around His loins,
    and faithfulness the belt around His waist.
