The Mountain of the Lord

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:1 - It shall come to pass in the latter days
that the mountain of the house of the LORD
shall be established as the highest of the mountains,
and it shall be lifted up above the hills;
and peoples shall flow to it,

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:2 - and many nations shall come, and say:
“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,
to the house of the God of Jacob,
that he may teach us his ways
and that we may walk in his paths.”
For out of Zion shall go forth the law,[fn]
and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:3 - He shall judge between many peoples,
and shall decide disputes for strong nations far away;
and they shall beat their swords into plowshares,
and their spears into pruning hooks;
nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war anymore;

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:4 - but they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree,
and no one shall make them afraid,
for the mouth of the LORD of hosts has spoken.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:5 - For all the peoples walk
each in the name of its god,
but we will walk in the name of the LORD our God
forever and ever.

The Lord Shall Rescue Zion

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:6 - In that day, declares the LORD,
I will assemble the lame
and gather those who have been driven away
and those whom I have afflicted;

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:7 - and the lame I will make the remnant,
and those who were cast off, a strong nation;
and the LORD will reign over them in Mount Zion
from this time forth and forevermore.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:8 - And you, O tower of the flock,
hill of the daughter of Zion,
to you shall it come,
the former dominion shall come,
kingship for the daughter of Jerusalem.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:9 - Now why do you cry aloud?
Is there no king in you?
Has your counselor perished,
that pain seized you like a woman in labor?

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:10 - Writhe and groan,[fn] O daughter of Zion,
like a woman in labor,
for now you shall go out from the city
and dwell in the open country;
you shall go to Babylon.
There you shall be rescued;
there the LORD will redeem you
from the hand of your enemies.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:11 - Now many nations
are assembled against you,
saying, “Let her be defiled,
and let our eyes gaze upon Zion.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:12 - But they do not know
the thoughts of the LORD;
they do not understand his plan,
that he has gathered them as sheaves to the threshing floor.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:13 - Arise and thresh,
O daughter of Zion,
for I will make your horn iron,
and I will make your hoofs bronze;
you shall beat in pieces many peoples;
and shall devote[fn] their gain to the LORD,
their wealth to the Lord of the whole earth.
