IMMERSE

PROPHETS
All the people of Gibeah, the hometown of Saul,
are running for their lives.
Scream in terror,
you people of Gallim!
Shout out a warning to Laishah.
Oh, poor Anathoth!
There go the people of Madmenah, all fleeing.
The citizens of Gebim are trying to hide.
The enemy stops at Nob for the rest of that day.
He shakes his fist at beautiful Mount Zion, the mountain
of Jerusalem.
But look! The Lord, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies,
will chop down the mighty tree of Assyria with great power!
He will cut down the proud.
That lofty tree will be brought down.
He will cut down the forest trees with an ax.
Lebanon will fall to the Mighty One.
Out of the stump of David’s family will grow a shoot—
yes, a new Branch bearing fruit from the old root.
And the Spirit of the Lord will rest on him—
the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
the Spirit of counsel and might,
the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.
He will delight in obeying the Lord.
He will not judge by appearance
nor make a decision based on hearsay.
He will give justice to the poor
and make fair decisions for the exploited.
The earth will shake at the force of his word,
and one breath from his mouth will destroy the wicked.
He will wear righteousness like a belt
and truth like an undergarment.
In that day the wolf and the lamb will live together;
the leopard will lie down with the baby goat.
The calf and the yearling will be safe with the lion,
and a little child will lead them all.
The cow will graze near the bear.
The cub and the calf will lie down together.
The lion will eat hay like a cow.
The baby will play safely near the hole of a cobra.
