Isaiah 11:1–9 (DARBY)

1  And there shall come forth a shoot out of the stock of Jesse, and a branch out of his roots shall be fruitful; 2  and 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 of the fear of Jehovah. 3  And his delight will be in the fear of Jehovah; and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears; 4  but with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. 5  And righteousness shall be the girdle of his reins, and faithfulness the girdle of his loins. 6  The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid, and the calf and the young lion and the fatted beast together, and a little child shall lead them. 7  And the cow and the she-bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. 8  And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the adder, and the weaned child shall put forth its hand to the viper’s den. 9  They 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.
