The Ruler to Be Born in Bethlehem

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 5:1 - [fn] Now muster your troops, O daughter[fn] of troops;
siege is laid against us;
with a rod they strike the judge of Israel
on the cheek.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 5:2 - [fn] But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah,
who are too little to be among the clans of Judah,
from you shall come forth for me
one who is to be ruler in Israel,
whose coming forth is from of old,
from ancient days.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 5:3 - Therefore he shall give them up until the time
when she who is in labor has given birth;
then the rest of his brothers shall return
to the people of Israel.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 5:4 - And he shall stand and shepherd his flock in the strength of the LORD,
in the majesty of the name of the LORD his God.
And they shall dwell secure, for now he shall be great
to the ends of the earth.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 5:5 - And he shall be their peace.
When the Assyrian comes into our land
and treads in our palaces,
then we will raise against him seven shepherds
and eight princes of men;

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 5:6 - they shall shepherd the land of Assyria with the sword,
and the land of Nimrod at its entrances;
and he shall deliver us from the Assyrian
when he comes into our land
and treads within our border.

A Remnant Shall Be Delivered

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 5:7 - Then the remnant of Jacob shall be
in the midst of many peoples
like dew from the LORD,
like showers on the grass,
which delay not for a man
nor wait for the children of man.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 5:8 - And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the nations,
in the midst of many peoples,
like a lion among the beasts of the forest,
like a young lion among the flocks of sheep,
which, when it goes through, treads down
and tears in pieces, and there is none to deliver.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 5:9 - Your hand shall be lifted up over your adversaries,
and all your enemies shall be cut off.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 5:10 - And in that day, declares the LORD,
I will cut off your horses from among you
and will destroy your chariots;

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 5:11 - and I will cut off the cities of your land
and throw down all your strongholds;

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 5:12 - and I will cut off sorceries from your hand,
and you shall have no more tellers of fortunes;

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 5:13 - and I will cut off your carved images
and your pillars from among you,
and you shall bow down no more
to the work of your hands;

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 5:14 - and I will root out your Asherah images from among you
and destroy your cities.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 5:15 - And in anger and wrath I will execute vengeance
on the nations that did not obey.
