Bible Bot for Isaiah 11:1-9
Isaiah 11:1-9 (Show Context)

11:1 A shoot will grow out of Jesse’s root stock,

a bud will sprout from his roots.

2 The Lord’s Spirit will rest on him

a Spirit that gives extraordinary wisdom,

a Spirit that provides the ability to execute plans,

a Spirit that produces absolute loyalty to the Lord.

3 He will take delight in obeying the Lord.

He will not judge by mere appearances

or make decisions on the basis of hearsay.

4 He will treat the poor fairly

and make right decisions for the downtrodden of the earth.

He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth

and order the wicked to be executed.

5 Justice will be like a belt around his waist,

integrity will be like a belt around his hips.

6 A wolf will reside with a lamb,

and a leopard will lie down with a young goat;

an ox and a young lion will graze together,

as a small child leads them along.

7 A cow and a bear will graze together,

their young will lie down together.

A lion, like an ox, will eat straw.

8 A baby will play

over the hole of a snake;

over the nest of a serpent

an infant will put his hand.

9 They will no longer injure or destroy

on my entire royal mountain.

For there will be universal submission to the Lord’s sovereignty,

just as the waters completely cover the sea.
