The Branch’s Righteous Reign

1 And a shoot will come out from the stump of Jesse, and a branch from its roots will bear fruit. 2 And the spirit of Yahweh shall rest on him-- a spirit of wisdom and understanding, a spirit of counsel and might, a spirit of knowledge and the fear of Yahweh. 3 And his {breath}a [is] in the fear of Yahweh. And he shall judge not by his eyesight, and he shall rebuke not by {what he hears with}b his ears. 4 But he shall judge [the] poor with righteousness, and he shall decide for [the] needy of [the] earth with rectitude. And he shall strike [the] earth with the rod of his mouth, and he shall kill [the] wicked person with the breath of his lips. 5 And righteousness shall be the belt around his waist, and faithfulness the belt around his loins. 6 And a wolf shall {stay}c with a lamb, and a leopard shall lie down with a kid, and a calf and a lion and a fatling together {as a small boy leads}d them. 7 And a cow and a bear shall graze; their young shall lie down together. And a lion shall eat straw like the cattle. 8 And {an infant}e shall play over a serpent's hole, and {a toddler}f shall put his hand on a viper's hole. 9 They will not injure and they will not destroy on all of my {holy mountain},g for the earth will be full [of the] knowledge [of] Yahweh, as the waters cover the sea. 10 And this shall happen on that day: [the] nations shall inquire of the root of Jesse, which shall be standing as a signal to [the] peoples, and his resting place shall be glorious.

The Regathered Remnant

11 And this shall happen on that day: The Lord will again [extend] his hand a second [time] to acquire the remnant of his people that is left, from Assyria, Egypt, Pathros, Cush, Elam, Shinar, Hamath, and the coastlands of the sea, 12 and he will raise a signal for the nations. And he will gather the outcasts of Israel, and he will gather the scattered ones of Judah together from the four {corners}h of the earth. 13 And the jealousy of Ephraim shall depart, and the enemies of Judah shall be cut off. Ephraim shall not be jealous [of] Judah, and Judah shall not be an enemy [of] Ephraim. 14 But they shall {swoop}i upon [the] Philistine shoulder,j {westward}.k Together they shall plunder [the] sons of [the] east. Edom and Moab {will be under their command},l and the sons of Ammon [will be] their subjugated people. 15 And Yahweh will dividem the tonguen of the sea of Egypt,o and he will wave his hand over the riverp with his scorching wind; and he will strike it into seven streams, and he will {make it passable by foot}.q 16 So there shall be a highway from Assyria for the remnant of his people that remains, as there was for Israel {when}r it went up from the land of Egypt.
