Isaiah 11:1-2 (NIV)
1A
shoot will come up from
the stump of Jesse;

bear fruit. 2The Spirit of the
LORD will rest on him— the

understanding, the Spirit of
counsel and of might, the
Spirit of the knowledge and
fear of the LORD—

tronco de Isaí brotará un

espíritu de conocimiento y de
temor del SEÑOR.

The Preacher’s Commentary
Ezekiel
“An allegory is a specially composed fictional story that,
while not literally true, is figuratively true in that it points
directly to things that really did or will happen. It is a
kind of comparison story in which the specific details
have been changed from the true events it points to but
which still captures the sense of the actual situation and
events. Each major detail of an allegory corresponds to
a fact of some sort in real life. The minor details have
little significance other than helping the story move
along.”
