The LORD’s Rule from Restored Zion
(cf. Isa 2:2–4 )
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:1 -

In the last days

the mountain of the LORD’s house

will be established

at the top of the mountains

and will be raised above the hills.

Peoples will stream to it,

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:2 -

and many nations will come and say,

“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,

to the house of the God of Jacob.

He will teach us about his ways

so we may walk in his paths.”

For instruction will go out of Zion

and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:3 -

He will settle disputes among many peoples

and provide arbitration for strong nations

that are far away.

They will beat their swords into plows

and their spears into pruning knives.

Nation will not take up the sword against nation,

and they will never again train for war.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:4 -

But each person will sit under his grapevine

and under his fig tree

with no one to frighten him.

For the mouth of the LORD of Armies

has spoken.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:5 -

Though all the peoples each walk

in the name of their gods,

we will walk in the name of the LORD our God

forever and ever.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:6 -

On that day —

this is the LORD’s declaration —

I will assemble the lame

and gather the scattered,

those I have injured.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:7 -

I will make the lame into a remnant,

those far removed into a strong nation.

Then the LORD will reign over them in Mount Zion

from this time on and forever.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:8 -

And you, watchtower for the flock,

fortified hill[fn] of Daughter Zion,

the former rule will come to you;

sovereignty will come to Daughter Jerusalem.

From Exile to Victory
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:9 -

Now, why are you shouting loudly?

Is there no king with you?

Has your counselor perished

so that anguish grips you like a woman in labor?

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:10 -

Writhe and cry out,[fn] Daughter Zion,

like a woman in labor,

for now you will leave the city

and camp in the open fields.

You will go to Babylon;

there you will be rescued;

there the LORD will redeem you

from the grasp of your enemies!

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:11 -

Many nations have now assembled against you;

they say, “Let her be defiled,

and let us feast our eyes on Zion.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:12 -

But they do not know the LORD’s intentions

or understand his plan,

that he has gathered them

like sheaves to the threshing floor.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:13 -

Rise and thresh, Daughter Zion,

for I will make your horns iron

and your hooves bronze

so you can crush many peoples.

Then you[fn] will set apart their plunder

for the LORD,

their wealth for the Lord of the whole earth.
