Isaiah 11:2 The sprete of þe Lord shall lyght vpon hym: the sprete of wysdome, and vnderstandynge: þe sprete of councell, & strength the sprete of knowledge, and of the feare of the Lorde: Isaiah 11:3 and shall make hym feruent in the feare of God. For he shall not geue sentence, after the thyng that shal be brought before his eyes, nether reproue a matter at þe fyrst hearing: Isaiah 11:4 but wt ryghteousnesse shal he iudge þe poore, and with holynes shal he refourme the simple of the worlde. He shall smyte the worlde with the rodd of hys mouth, & wt the breath of hys mouth shall he staye the vngodly.

Isaiah 11:8 The childe whyle he sucketh, shal haue a desire to the serpentes nest, and when he is weaned, he shall put hys hande into the Cockatryce denne. Isaiah 11:9 No man shall do euel to another, no man shal destroye another, in all the hyll of my holynes. For the earth shalbe full of the knowledge of the Lord, euen as the see floweth ouer with water.

Isaiah 11:10 And in þt daye shal the gentyles enquere after þe rote of Iesse which shalbe set vp for a token vnto the people, & hys dwellynge shalbe glorious. Isaiah 11:11 At þe same time shal þe lord take in hande agayne, to conquere the remnaunt of his people (which shalbe left alyue) From the Assyrians, Egypcians, Arabians, Morians, Elamites, Caldeyes, Antiochians and from the Ilandes of the see.

Ephraim shall beare no euell will to Iuda, and Iuda shal not hate Ephraim: Isaiah 11:14 but they both together shall flye vpon the shoulders of þe Philistines toward the west, and spoyle them together that dwell towarde the East. The Idumytes and the Moabites shall lett their handes fall, & the Ammonites shalbe obedient vnto them. Isaiah 11:15 The Lorde also shall cleue the tunges of the Egypcians see, & with a myghtie wynde shall he lyft vp his hande ouer Nilus, and shall smyte hys seuen streames, and make men go ouer drye shod.
