A shoot shall sprout from the stem of Jesse, and a branch from his roots will bear fruit.  And 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.

And He will delight in the fear of the Lord, and He will not judge from what His eyes see, nor make a decision from what His ears hear; 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.  Also righteousness will be the belt about His loins, and faithfulness the belt about His waist.

And the wolf will dwell with the lamb, and the leopard will lie down with the kid, and the calf and the young lion will feed together; and a little boy will lead them.  Also the cow and the bear will graze; their young will lie down together; and the lion will eat straw like the ox.

And the nursing child will play by the hole of the cobra, and the weaned child will put his hand on the vipers den.  They will not hurt or destroy on all My holy mountain, for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord like the waters cover the sea.
