1And there shall come forth a rod from the stem, of Jesse;
And a shoot from his root shall produce fruit.
2And the spirit of Jehovah shall rest upon him;
The spirit of wisdom, and understanding;
The spirit of counsel, and might;
The spirit of knowledge, and the fear of Jehovah.
3And his delight shall be in the fear of Jehovah:
So that he shall not judge according to the sight of his eyes,
Neither give sentence according to the hearing of his ears;
4But with righteousness shall he judge the poor,
And with equity shall he give sentence to the meek of the earth.
And he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth,
And with the breath of his lips he shall slay the wicked.
5And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins,
And faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
6Then shall the wolf take up his abode with the lamb;
And the leopard shall lie down with the kid:
And the calf, and the young lion, and the fading shall be together;
And a little child shall lead them.
7And the cow and the bear shall feed together;
Their young ones shall lie down together:
And the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
8And the sucking child shall play at the hole of the asp,
And upon the den of the basilisk shall the newly weaned child lay his hand.
9They shall not hurt, nor destroy, in all my holy mountain;
For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of Jehovah,
As the waters cover the sea.
10And in that day there shall be
A root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign to the people;
Unto him shall the nations repair,
And his place of rest shall be glorious.
11And it shall come to pass in that day,
That the Lord shall again the second time put forth his hand,
To recover the remnant of his people
That remaineth, from Assyria, and from Egypt;
And from Pathros, and from Ethiopia, and from Elam;
And from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the Islands of the sea.
12And he shall lift up an ensign to the nations;
And he shall gather the outcasts of Israel,
And the dispersed of Judah shall he collect,
From the four extremities of the earth.
13And the jealousy of Ephraim shall depart,
And the adversaries in Judah shall be cut off;
Ephraim shall not be jealous of Judah,
Neither shall Judah be at enmity with Ephraim.
14But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west;
Together shall they spoil the children of the east;
On Edom and Moab they shall lay their hand;
And the sons of Ammon shall obey them.
15And Jehovah shall devote to destruction the tongue of the sea of Egypt;
And he shall shake his hand over the river with his vehement wind,
And he shall strike it into seven streams,
So that one may pass over it dry-shod.
16And there shall be a high-way for the remnant of his people,
Which shall remain from Assyria,
As there was unto Israel
In the day when he came up from the land of Egypt.

Yeshayah (Isaiah) 11
1And a Rod shall come forth from the stump of Yishai, and a Sprout from his roots shall be fruitful.
2The Spirit of יהוה 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 יהוה,
3and shall make Him breathe in the fear of יהוה. And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, nor decide by the hearing of His ears.
4But with righteousness He shall judge the poor, and shall decide with straightness for the meek ones of the earth, and shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, and slay the wrong with the breath of His lips.
5And righteousness shall be the girdle of His loins, and trustworthiness the girdle of His waist.
6And a wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and a leopard lie down with the young goat, and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together, and a little child leads them.
7And cow and bear shall feed, their young ones lie down together, and a lion eat straw like an ox.
8And the nursing child shall play by the cobra’s hole, and the weaned child shall put his hand in the adder’s den.
9They do no evil nor destroy in all My set-apart mountain, for the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of יהוה as the waters cover the sea.#See Hab. 2:14
10And in that day there shall be a Root of Yishai, standing as a banner to the people. Unto Him the nations shall seek, and His rest shall be esteem.
11And it shall be in that day that יהוה sets His hand again a second time to recover the remnant of His people who are left, from Ashshur and from Mitsrayim, from Pathros and from Kush, from Ěylam and from Shin‛ar, from Ḥamath and from the islands of the sea.
12And He shall raise a banner for the nations, and gather the outcasts of Yisra’ĕl, and assemble the dispersed of Yehuḏah from the four corners of the earth.
13And the envy of Ephrayim shall turn aside, and the adversaries of Yehuḏah be cut off. Ephrayim shall not envy Yehuḏah, and Yehuḏah not trouble Ephrayim.
14But they shall fly down upon the shoulder of the Philistines toward the west; together they plunder the people of the east, their hand stretching forth on Eḏom and Mo’aḇ, and the children of Ammon shall be subject to them.
15And יהוה shall put under the ban the tongue of the Sea of Mitsrayim, and He shall wave His hand over the River with the might of His Spirit, and shall strike it in the seven streams, and shall cause men to tread it in sandals.
16And there shall be a highway for the remnant of His people, those left from Ashshur, as it was for Yisra’ĕl in the day when he came up from the land of Mitsrayim.
