Like a shepherd He will tend His flock,
In His arm He will gather the lambs
And carry them in His bosom;

And He will strike the earth with the rod of His mouth,
And with the breath of His lips He will slay the wicked.

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,
Because the Lord has anointed me
To bring good news to the afflicted;

And faithfulness the belt about His waist.
The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him,
The spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The spirit of counsel and strength,
The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.

Nor make His voice heard in the street.
And He will delight in the fear of the Lord,
And He will not judge by what His eyes see,
Nor make a decision by what His ears hear;
