11:1 A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.
11:2 The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him–the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of power, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD–
11:3 and he will delight in the fear of the LORD. He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears;
11:4 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.
11:5 Righteousness will be his belt and faithfulness the sash around his waist.
6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
6:11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
6:13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
6:14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,
6:15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.
6:16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
6:17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
6:18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
6:19 Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel,
6:20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
