Bible: Isaiah 11:3-5

11:3 He will take delight in obeying the Lord. 1 

He will not judge by mere appearances, 2 

or make decisions on the basis of hearsay. 3 

11:4 He will treat the poor fairly, 4 

and make right decisions 5  for the downtrodden of the earth. 6 

He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth, 7 

and order the wicked to be executed. 8 

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

integrity will be like a belt around his hips. 9
