Isaiah 11 New American Standard Bible

The Righteous Reign of the Branch of Jesse

11 1  Then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse , And a branch from his roots will bear fruit . 2  The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him, The spirit of wisdom and understanding , The spirit of counsel and strength , The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord . 3  And He will delight in the fear of the Lord , And He will not judge by what His eyes see , Nor make a decision by what His ears hear ; 4  But with righteousness He will judge the poor , And decide with fairness for the afflicted of the earth ; And He will strike the earth with the rod of His mouth , And with the breath of His lips He will slay the wicked . 5  Also righteousness will be the belt about His loins , And faithfulness the belt about His waist . 6  And the wolf will dwell with the lamb , And the leopard will lie down with the young goat , And the calf and the young lion and the fatling together ; And a little boy will lead them. 7  Also the cow and the bear will graze , Their young will lie down together , And the lion will eat straw like the ox . 8  The nursing child will play by the hole of the cobra , And the weaned child will put his hand on the viper's den . 9  They will not hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain , For the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord As the waters cover the sea .

10  Then in that day The nations will resort to the root of Jesse , Who will stand as a signal for the peoples ; And His resting place will be glorious . 11  Then it will happen on that day that the Lord Will again recover the second time with His hand The remnant of His people , who will remain , From Assyria , Egypt , Pathros , Cush , Elam , Shinar , Hamath , And from the islands of the sea . 12  And He will lift up a standard for the nations And assemble the banished ones of Israel , And will gather the dispersed of Judah From the four corners of the earth . 13  Then the jealousy of Ephraim will depart , And those who harass Judah will be cut off ; Ephraim will not be jealous of Judah , And Judah will not harass Ephraim . 14  They will swoop down on the slopes of the Philistines on the west ; Together they will plunder the sons of the east ; They will possess e Edom and Moab , And the sons of Ammon will be subject to them. 15  And the Lord will utterly destroy The tongue of the Sea of Egypt ; And He will wave His hand over the River With His scorching wind ; And He will strike it into seven streams And make men walk over dry-shod . 16  And there will be a highway from Assyria For the remnant of His people who will be left , Just as there was for Israel In the day that they came up out of the land of Egypt .
