Bible: Isa 11:2-5

11:2 The Lord’s spirit will rest on him 1 

a spirit that gives extraordinary wisdom, 2 

a spirit that provides the ability to execute plans, 3 

a spirit that produces absolute loyalty to the Lord. 4 

11:3 He will take delight in obeying the Lord. 5 

He will not judge by mere appearances, 6 

or make decisions on the basis of hearsay. 7 

11:4 He will treat the poor fairly, 8 

and make right decisions 9  for the downtrodden of the earth. 10 

He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth, 11 

and order the wicked to be executed. 12 

11:5 Justice will be like a belt around his waist,

integrity will be like a belt around his hips. 13
