Isaiah 11

1. And the staff emerges from the trunk of Eashai*
and the nugget branches out from its root;
2. And there shall rest and settle upon him the Spirit of Allaha,
the Spirit of Wisdom and Knowledge,
the Spirit of Providence and Greatness,
the Spirit of Understanding and Submission to Maryah;
3. And he shall ascend from the East*
with his Maryah's assumptions,*
and he judges neither according to what his eyes see,
nor does he prune according to what his ears hear.
4. He shall judge the poor with justice
and he shall cut down the evil-doers of the world
with perfection;*
he shall strike the earth with the rule* of his mouth,
and with the Spirit of His Lips he shall slay the depraved.
5. Holiness shall be what girds his back,
and faith what holds together his sides.
6. The wolf shall live with the ram,
the tiger shall grow up with the goat,
just as the calf, the Lion's cub and the ox --
they shall graze together,
and a small child shall take care of them.
7. The cow and the bear shall graze together
as though they were one,
and their offspring shall grow up together
like they were one,
and the lion shall eat hay* like the ox.
8. And the boy dares to approach the coiled snake
and in plain view of the cobra he extends his hand to touch it.
9. Neither shall evil befall them,
nor shall they suffer pain in all my holy mountain,
because the earth shall be filled
by the knowledge of Maryah,
as water covers the sea.
10. And on that Day,
the Root of Eashai* that rises
shall be a sign to the nations,
and to him the nations shall hold fast,
and his fine garments shall be their honor.
11. And on that Day,
Maryah redoubles the sweep of his hand,
to regain those of his people that were left behind,
from the Land of Ashur, Missryn*, Petros,*
Kush,* Elam, Saer,* Khammath,*
and the Islands of the Sea.
12. And he shall raise signs to the nations
and gather the lost of Israel and the scattered of Judah
from the four corners of the earth.*
13. And the zeal shall pass from Ephraim,
and the oppressors of Judah shall depart;
Ephraim shall not uphold Judah,
and Judah shall not oppress Ephraim.
14. Thus they fell upon the shoulders
of the Philistines by the Sea,
and as one they divided the spoils of war
between the Easterners;
they stretched their hands toward Edom and Moab,
and the Amorites heeded them.
15. And Maryah destroyed the tongue of the sea
that was in Egypt,
and he raised his hand over the river
that was under the mastery of his Spirit,
and he struck the seven torrents,
so as the crossing could be made on sandals.
16. And he became the tributary for many of his people
that had remained in the land of Ashur,
as it was for Israel on the Day
when they came up from the land of Egypt.
