Isaiah 11:2

Hebrew Bible

1 A shoot will grow out of Jesse’s root stock, a bud will sprout from his roots. 2 The Lord’s Spirit will rest on him—a Spirit that gives extraordinary wisdom, a Spirit that provides the ability to execute plans, a Spirit that produces absolute loyalty to the Lord. 3 His smelling is in the fear of the Lord7. He will not judge by mere appearances or make decisions on the basis of hearsay. 4 He will treat the poor fairly and make right decisions for the downtrodden of the earth. He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth and order the wicked to be executed.

Psalms of Solomon 17:37


35 He will strike the earth with the word of his mouth forever; He will bless the Lord's people with wisdom and happiness. 36 And he himself will be free from sin, in order to rule such a great people. He will expose officials and drive out sinners by the strength of his word. 37 And he will not weaken during his reign, relying upon his God, because God will make him powerful by a holy spirit; and wise in intelligent counsel, with strength and righteousness. 38 And the blessing of the Lord will be with him in strength, and it will not weaken. 39 His hope will be in the Lord. Then who can be stronger than he?
