1But a shoot shall grow out of the stump of Jesse, A twig shall sprout from his stock. 2The spirit of the LORD shall alight upon him: A spirit of wisdom and insight, A spirit of counsel and valor, A spirit of devotion and reverence for the LORD. 3 c‐ Lit. “His sensing [shall be]”; meaning of Heb. uncertain. He shall sense the truth ‐c Lit. “His sensing [shall be]”; meaning of Heb. uncertain. by his reverence for the LORD: He shall not judge by what his eyes behold, Nor decide by what his ears perceive. 4‐Thus he shall judge the poor with equity And decide with justice for the lowly of the land. He shall strike down a land d Emendation yields “the ruthless.” with the rod of his mouth And slay the wicked with the breath of his lips. 5Justice shall be the girdle of his loins, And faithfulness the girdle of his waist. 6The wolf shall dwell with the lamb, The leopard lie down with the kid; e‐ 1QIs a reads: “The calf and the beast of prey shall feed”; so too the Septuagint.

Nothing evil or vile shall be done; For the land shall be filled with devotion to the LORD As water covers the sea.

10In that day, The stock of Jesse that has remained standing Shall become a standard to peoples— Nations shall seek his counsel And his abode shall be honored.

11In that day, my Lord will apply His hand again to redeeming the other part c I.e., the part outside the Holy Land; lit. “the rest that will remain.” of His people from Assyria—as also from Egypt, Pathros, Nubia, Elam, Shinar, Hamath, and the coastlands.

12He will hold up a signal to the nations And assemble the banished of Israel, And gather the dispersed of Judah From the four corners of the earth.

13Then Ephraim's envy shall cease And Judah's harassment shall end; Ephraim shall not envy Judah, And Judah shall not harass Ephraim. 14They shall pounce on the back of Philistia to the west, And together plunder the peoples of the east; Edom and Moab shall be subject to them And the children of Ammon shall obey them.
