But with righteousness He shall judge the poor,
And decide with equity for the meek of the earth;
He shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth,
And with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked.
Righteousness shall be the belt of His loins,
And faithfulness the belt of His waist...
For the Lord is our Judge,
The Lord is our Lawgiver,
The Lord is our King;
He will save us.
-- Isaiah 11.4-5; 33.22 (NKJV)
Today we pray for Christ's coming:
O Adonai and
ruler of the house of Israel,
who appeared to Moses
in the burning bush
and gave him the Law on Sinai:
Come with an outstretched arem
and redeem us.
