Isaiah 11:1-16  From G. Benjamin
Sunday 16th-pm service.

There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse,
and a branch shall grow out of his roots.
And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest on him,
And the Spirit of wisdom and understanding and the spirit of counsel and might,
and the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.
And his delight shall be in the fear of the Lord............

In that day the Lord will extend his hand yet a second time
to recover the remnant which is left of his people,
from Assyria, from Egypt, from Pathros, from Ethiopia, from Elam,
from Shinar, from Hamath, and from the coastlands of the sea.
He will raise an ensign for the nations, and will assemble the outcasts of Israel,
and gather the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
The jealousy of Ephraim shall depart, and those who harass Judah shall be cut off;
Ephraim shall not be jealous of Judah, and Judah shall not harass Ephraim.
But they shall swoop down upon the shoulder of the Philistines in the west,
And together they shall plunder the people of the east.
They shall put forth their hand against Edom and Moab,
And the Ammonites shall obey them.
And the Lord will utterly destroy the tongue of the sea of Egypt; ....
And there will be a highway from Assyria for the remnant which is left of his people,
as there was for Israel when they came up from the land of Egypt.
