Isaiah 11:1-9

1advent

A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse;
from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.

The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him—
the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding,
the Spirit of counsel and of power,
the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD –

and he will delight in the fear of the LORD.
He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes,
or decide by what he hears with his ears;

but with righteousness he will judge the needy,
with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth.
He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth;
with the breath of his lips he will slay the wicked.

Righteousness will be his belt
and faithfulness the sash around his waist.

The wolf will live with the lamb,
the leopard will lie down with the goat,
the calf and the lion and the yearling  together;
and a little child will lead them.

The cow will feed with the bear,
their young will lie down together,
and the lion will eat straw like the ox.

The infant will play near the hole of the cobra,
and the young child put his hand into the viper’s nest.

They will neither harm nor destroy
on all my holy mountain,
for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD
as the waters cover the sea.

  1. What a beautiful announcement of the Messiah, announcing the boons of his kingdom and the reward for the righteous, thanks Jonie.

  2. God’s man of great vision, Isaiah!! Amazing!! Isaiah saw eternity past and future and right in the middle of it all he witnessed the virgin of the SON OF GOD, SAVIOR, KING OF KINGS, LORD OF LORDS!! This, Isaiah saw a little over seven hundred years before the fact and yet he could say in his heart, ” AND IT WAS SO!” Hallelujah!!! Thank you Jonie : )
