1 "And there shall come forth a rod [Jesus described as a rod to rule and discipline]out of the stem of Jesse [David's father], and a Branch shall grow out of his roots.1
10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign and standard of the people; the Gentiles shall seek it, and his rest shall be glorious.4
|Revelation 5:5,22:16 |
5 Then one of the elders said to me, "Do not weep; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book, and to break the seven seals of it."
16 "I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright morning star.2 [From the Word of the Lord within: "Light comes from faith in the voice. My word is in your heart and mouth. Listen well to my words; attend to them. And to those who obey, he will appear like a magnificent star in your heart. The arising of the light will be unmistakable."]
