Go to Commentary on Isa 11

 1 A shoot will come out of the stump of Jesse,

 and a branch from his roots will bear fruit.


 2 And the spirit of Yahweh will rest on him—

 a spirit of wisdom and understanding,

 a spirit of counsel and power,

 a spirit of knowledge and of the fear of Yahweh.


 3 His delight will be in the fear of Yahweh.

 He will not judge

 by what he sees with his eyes,

 nor will he decide

 by what he hears with his ears;


 4 but with righteousness he will judge the poor,

 and decide with equity for the humble of the earth.

 He will strike the earth

 with the rod of his mouth,

 and with the spirit from his lips

 he will kill the wicked.


 5 Righteousness will be the belt of his waist,

 and faithfulness the belt of his waist.


 6 The wolf will live with the lamb

 and the leopard will lie down with the young goat;

 the calf, the young lion, and the fattened calf together,

 and a little child will lead them.


 7 The cow and the bear will graze.

 Their young ones will lie down together.

 The lion will eat straw like the ox.


 8 The nursing child will play near a cobra’s hole,

 and the weaned child will put his hand on the viper’s den.


 9 They will not hurt nor destroy

 in all my holy mountain,

 for the earth will be full

 of the knowledge of Yahweh

 like the waters cover the sea.


It will happen in that day

 that the nations will seek the Shoot from Jesse

 who stands as a banner of the peoples,

 and his resting place will be glorious.


11It will happen in that day that the Lord will set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant that is left of his people from Assyria, from Egypt, from Pathros, from Cush, from Elam, from Shinar, from Hamath and from the islands of the sea.

 12 He will set up a banner for the nations

 and will assemble the outcasts of Israel,

 and gather together the dispersed of Judah

 from the four corners of the earth.


 13 The envy also of Ephraim will depart,

 and those who persecute Judah will be cut off.

 Ephraim will not envy Judah,

 and Judah will not persecute Ephraim.


 14 They will fly down

 on the shoulders of the Philistines on the west.

 Together they will plunder the children of the east.

 They will extend their power over Edom and Moab,

 and the children of Ammon will obey them.


 15 Yahweh will utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea,

 and with his scorching wind he will wave his hand over the River,

 and will split it into seven streams

 and cause men to march over in sandals.


 16 There will be a highway for the remnant that is left

 of his people from Assyria,

 like there was for Israel

 in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.
