(12) And again, Esaias saith.--St. Paul still adheres to the LXX., which here diverges more widely from the Hebrew. The sense of this is rightly given by the Authorised version of Isaiah 11:10--"In that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek." In either case the passage is Messianic.

A root of Jesse.--Strictly, the root, or, root-shoot of Jesse, as in Proverbs 5:5--i.e., the expected descendant of Jesse's line, which, to bring out its intimate connection with the founder of the line, and to distinguish it from all other collateral branches, is identified with the very root, or first shooTrust.--The same word as "hope" in the next verse, the introduction of which was probably suggested, through the association of ideas, by the concluding words of the LXX. quotation--"On Him shall the Gentiles place their hopes. Now the God of hope, &c.
