The restoration brought in through Christ
Then a 1asprout
will come forth from the stump of bJesse
And a branch from his croots
will bear dfruit
And the 1aSpirit
of Jehovah will rest upon Him,
The Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The Spirit of counsel and might,
The Spirit of knowledge and the fear of Jehovah.
He will delight in the fear of Jehovah:
He will neither judge by awhat
His eyes see,
Nor decide by what His ears hear.
But He will judge the poor in arighteousness
And decide with equity for the afflicted of the land.
And He will strike the land with the rod of His mouth,
And with the bbreath
of His lips He will slay the wicked.
Righteousness will be that which 1agirds
And faithfulness will be that which girds His hips.
will dwell with the lamb;
And the leopard will lie down with the kid,
And the calf and the young lion and the fatling together;
And a young boy will lead them about.
The cow and the bear will graze;
Their young will lie down together;
And the lion will eat straw like the ox.
The nursing child will play by the cobra’s hole,
And upon the viper’s den
The weaned child will stretch his hand.
They will not harm nor destroy
In all aMy
For the bearth
will be filled with the knowledge of Jehovah,
As water covers the sea.
And in that day the 1aroot
Who stands as a 2banner to the peoples — bHim
will the 3nations
And His resting place will be the 4glory
And in that day the Lord,
By His hand for the 1second
of His people
Who remain, from Assyria and from Egypt,
From Pathros, Cush, and Elam,
From Shinar, Hamath, and the islands of the sea.
He will lift up a 1standard
to the nations,
And will agather
the outcasts of Israel;
And the dispersed of Judah He will assemble
From the bfour
corners of the earth.
’s jealousy will depart,
And the adversaries in Judah will be cut off;
Ephraim will not be jealous of Judah,
Nor will Judah be hostile to Ephraim.
And they will fly down upon the shoulders of the Philistines on the west;
Together they will plunder the children of the east.
Edom and Moab will come into the grasp of their hand,
And the children of Ammon will submit to them.
And Jehovah will 1utterly
destroy the 2tongue
of the sea of Egypt;
And will wave His hand over the 2River with the scorching of His wind,
And He will strike it into seven streams,
And march men through it adryshod
And there will be a ahighway
For the remnant of His people which remain,
As there was for Israel
In the day that they bcame
up from the land of Egypt.
