The Law Will Go Forth from Zion

(cf. Isa 2:2–4 )
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:1 -

Now it will be that in the last days

The mountain of the house of Yahweh

Will be established [fn]as the head of the mountains,

And will be lifted up above the hills,

And the peoples will stream to it.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:2 -

And many nations will come and say,

“Come and let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh

And to the house of the God of Jacob,

That He may instruct us from His ways

And that we may walk in His paths.”

For from Zion will go forth the law,

And the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:3 -

And He will judge between many peoples

And will render decisions for mighty, [fn]distant nations.

And they will hammer their swords into plowshares

And their spears into pruning hooks;

Nation will not lift up sword against nation,

And never again will they learn war.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:4 -

And each of them will sit under his vine

And under his fig tree,

With no one to make them tremble,

For the mouth of Yahweh of hosts has spoken.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:5 -

Though all the peoples walk

Each in the name of his god,

As for us, we will walk

In the name of Yahweh our God forever and ever.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:6 -

“In that day,” declares Yahweh,

“I will assemble the lame

And gather the banished,

Even those upon whom I have brought calamity.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:7 -

“I will make the lame a remnant

And the outcasts a mighty nation,

And Yahweh will reign over them in Mount Zion

From now on and forever.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:8 -

“And as for you, [fn]tower of the flock,

[fn]Hill of the daughter of Zion,

To you it will come

Even the former dominion will come,

The kingdom of the daughter of Jerusalem.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:9 -

“Now, why do you make a loud shout?

Is there no king among you,

Or has your counselor perished,

That writhing has taken hold of you like a woman in childbirth?

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:10 -

“Writhe and labor to give birth,

Daughter of Zion,

Like a woman in childbirth;

For now you will go out of the city,

Dwell in the field,

And go to Babylon.

There you will be delivered;

There Yahweh will redeem you

From the hand of your enemies.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:11 -

“But now many nations have been assembled against you

Who say, ‘Let her be polluted,

And let our eyes behold Zion in triumph.’

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:12 -

“But they do not know the thoughts of Yahweh,

And they do not understand His counsel;

For He has gathered them like sheaves to the threshing floor.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:13 -

“Arise and thresh, daughter of Zion,

For your horn I will make iron,

And your hoofs I will make bronze,

That you may pulverize many peoples,

That you may devote to Yahweh their greedy gain unto destruction

And their wealth to the Lord of all the earth.
