16 h“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify to you about these things ifor the churches. I am jthe root and kthe descendant of David, lthe bright morning star.”
The Righteous Reign of the Branch
11 There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of lJesse,
and a branch from his roots shall bear fruit.
10 In that day xthe root of yJesse, who shall stand as za signal for the peoples—of him shall the nations inquire, and his resting place shall be glorious.
12 And again Isaiah says,
ij“The root of Jesse will come,
even he who arises to rule the Gentiles;
kin him will the Gentiles hope.”
