Righteousness will be his belt and faithfulness the sash around his waist.
King James Bible
And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
American Standard Version
And righteousness shall be the girdle of his waist, and faithfulness the girdle of his loins.
Young's Literal Translation
And righteousness hath been the girdle of his loins, And faithfulness -- the girdle of his reins.
Isaiah 11:5 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The girdle "The cincture" - All the ancient Versions, except that of Symmachus, have two different words for girdle in the two hemistichs. It is not probable that Isaiah would have repeated אזור azer, when a synonymous word so obvious as חגור chagor occurred. The tautology seems to have arisen from the mistake of some transcriber. The meaning of this verse is, that a zeal for justice and truth shall make him active and strong in executing the great work which he shall undertake. See note on Isaiah 5:27.
