And he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, Neither arbitrate after the hearing of his ears; But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, And arbitrate with equity for the afflicted of the land: And he shall smite the tyrannous with the rod of his mouth, And with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked, And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, And faithfulness the girdle of his reins, And the wolf shall dwell with the lamb, And the leopard shall lie down with the kid; The calf and the young lion shall feed together; And a little child shall lead them.- "Stories of the Prophets (Before the Exile)", Isaac Landman.
