Isaiah 11:1-5, NLT

Isaiah 11

A Branch from David’s Line

1Out of the stump of David’s family*11:1 Hebrew the stump of the line of Jesse. Jesse was King David’s father. will grow a shoot—

yes, a new Branch bearing fruit from the old root.

2And the Spirit of the Lord will rest on him—

the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,

the Spirit of counsel and might,

the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.

3He will delight in obeying the Lord.

He will not judge by appearance

nor make a decision based on hearsay.

4He will give justice to the poor

and make fair decisions for the exploited.

The earth will shake at the force of his word,

and one breath from his mouth will destroy the wicked.

5He will wear righteousness like a belt

and truth like an undergarment.
