Isaiah 11

11
XI
1And there shall come forth a rod from the stem, of Jesse;
And a shoot from his root shall produce fruit.
2And the spirit of Jehovah shall rest upon him;
The spirit of wisdom, and understanding;
The spirit of counsel, and might;
The spirit of knowledge, and the fear of Jehovah.
3And his delight shall be in the fear of Jehovah:
So that he shall not judge according to the sight of his eyes,
Neither give sentence according to the hearing of his ears;
4But with righteousness shall he judge the poor,
And with equity shall he give sentence to the meek of the earth.
And he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth,
And with the breath of his lips he shall slay the wicked.
5And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins,
And faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
6Then shall the wolf take up his abode with the lamb;
And the leopard shall lie down with the kid:
And the calf, and the young lion, and the fading shall be together;
And a little child shall lead them.
7And the cow and the bear shall feed together;
Their young ones shall lie down together:
And the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
8And the sucking child shall play at the hole of the asp,
And upon the den of the basilisk shall the newly weaned child lay his hand.
9They shall not hurt, nor destroy, in all my holy mountain;
For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of Jehovah,
As the waters cover the sea.
10And in that day there shall be
A root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign to the people;
Unto him shall the nations repair,
And his place of rest shall be glorious.
11And it shall come to pass in that day,
That the Lord shall again the second time put forth his hand,
To recover the remnant of his people
That remaineth, from Assyria, and from Egypt;
And from Pathros, and from Ethiopia, and from Elam;
And from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the Islands of the sea.
12And he shall lift up an ensign to the nations;
And he shall gather the outcasts of Israel,
And the dispersed of Judah shall he collect,
From the four extremities of the earth.
13And the jealousy of Ephraim shall depart,
And the adversaries in Judah shall be cut off;
Ephraim shall not be jealous of Judah,
Neither shall Judah be at enmity with Ephraim.
14But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west;
Together shall they spoil the children of the east;
On Edom and Moab they shall lay their hand;
And the sons of Ammon shall obey them.
15And Jehovah shall devote to destruction the tongue of the sea of Egypt;
And he shall shake his hand over the river with his vehement wind,
And he shall strike it into seven streams,
So that one may pass over it dry-shod.
16And there shall be a high-way for the remnant of his people,
Which shall remain from Assyria,
As there was unto Israel
In the day when he came up from the land of Egypt.

The Peaceful Kingdom
1 # Rev 5.5; 22.16 The royal line of David is like a tree that has been cut down; but just as new branches sprout from a stump, so a new king will arise from among David's descendants.
2The Spirit of the LORD will give him wisdom,
and the knowledge and skill to rule his people.
He will know the LORD's will and honour him,
3and find pleasure in obeying him.
He will not judge by appearance or hearsay;
4 # 2 Thes 2.8 he will judge the poor fairly
and defend the rights of the helpless.
At his command the people will be punished,
and evil persons will die.
5 # Eph 6.14 He will rule his people with justice and integrity.
6 # Is 65.25 Wolves and sheep will live together in peace,
and leopards will lie down with young goats.
Calves and lion cubs will feed#11.6 Some ancient translations will feed; Hebrew and well-fed cattle. together,
and little children will take care of them.
7Cows and bears will eat together,
and their calves and cubs will lie down in peace.
Lions will eat straw as cattle do.
8Even a baby will not be harmed
if it plays near a poisonous snake.
9 # Hab 2.14 On Zion, God's sacred hill,
there will be nothing harmful or evil.
The land will be as full of knowledge of the LORD
as the seas are full of water.
The Exiled People will Return
10 # Rom 15.12 A day is coming when the new king from the royal line of David will be a symbol to the nations. They will gather in his royal city and give him honour. 11When that day comes, the Lord will once again use his power and bring back home those of his people who are left in Assyria and Egypt, in the lands of Pathros, Ethiopia#11.11 Ethiopia: See Word List., Elam, Babylonia, and Hamath, and in the coastlands and o the islands of the sea. 12The LORD will raise a signal flag to show the nations that he is gathering together again the scattered people of Israel and Judah and bringing them back from the four corners of the earth. 13The kingdom of Israel will not be jealous of Judah any more, and Judah will not be the enemy of Israel. 14Together they will attack the Philistines on the west and plunder the people who live to the east. They will conquer the people of Edom and Moab, and the people of Ammon will obey them. 15#Rev 16.12The LORD will dry up the Gulf of Suez, and he will bring a hot wind to dry up the Euphrates, leaving only seven tiny streams, so that anyone will be able to walk across. 16There will be a highway out of Assyria for those of his people Israel who have survived there, just as there was for their ancestors when they left Egypt.
