THE BOOK OF THE PROPHET
Isaiah 11 ©
A prophecy that Christ would be born of the stock of Jesse, v. 1. And would be excellently endued with the Spirit of the Lord, 2. Setting up a Kingdom by the preaching of His Word, 4. And that the members of His church would live together in peace and unity, 6. And they would at length get the victory over their spiritual enemies, being brought to the knowledge of the Holy Gospel, 11, 12, etc.
AND1 therea shall come forth 2a rod out of 3the 4stem 5of Jesse, and 6a Branch shall 7grow out of his roots:
And 8the spirit of the LORD shall 9rest upon him, 10the spirit of wisdom and understanding, theb spirit of counsel and might, the spirit 11of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;
And shall make 12him of quick 13understanding 14in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge 15after the sight of his eyes, neither 16reprove 17after the hearing of his ears:
But with righteousness shall 18he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for 19the meek of the earth: and he shall 20smite 21the earth 22with the rod of his mouth, 23and with the breath of his lips shall he slay 24the wicked.
And 25righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and 26faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
27Thec wolf also shall 28dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the 29fatling together; and 30a little child shall lead them.
And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and 31the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
And the sucking child 32shall play on the hole of 33the asp, and the weaned child 34shall put his hand on the cockatrice’d den.
35They shall not hurt nor destroy in all 36my holy mountain: for 37the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, 38as the waters cover the sea.
¶And in that day there shall be 39a roote of Jesse, 40which shall stand 41for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles 42seek: and 43his rest shall be glorious.
44And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand 45again the second time 46to recover 47the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from 48Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands 49of the sea.
And 50he shall set up 51an ensign for the nations, 52and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and 53gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four 54corners of the earth.
55The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: 56Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not 57vex Ephraim.
But 58they shall fly 59upon the shoulders of the Philistines 60toward the west; 61they shall spoil 62them of the east together: they 63shall lay their hand 64upon Edom and Moab; and 65the children of Ammon 66shall obey them.
67And the LORD shall utterly 68destroy 69the tongue 70of the Egyptian sea; and with his mighty wind shall he 71shake his hand 72over the river, and shall smite it in the seven 73streams, and make 74men go over 75dryshod.
And 76there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day 77that he came up outf of the land of Egypt.
