First Week of Advent: Saturday's Scripture Reading


Isaiah 11:1-5

A shoot will come from the stump of Jesse;
from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.
The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him -  [Matthew 3:16]
the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding,
the Spirit of counsel and of power,
the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD -
and he will delight in the fear of the LORD.

He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes, [John 7:24]
or decide by what he hears with his ears;
but with righteousness he will judge the needy,
with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth.
He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth;
with the breath of his lips he will slay the wicked.
Righteous will be his belt
and faithfulness the sash around his waist. [Eph. 6:14]
