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

And it will come about in the last days

That the mountain of the house of the LORD

Will be established [fn]as the chief of the mountains.

It will be raised above the hills,

And the peoples will stream to it.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:2 -

Many nations will come and say,

“Come and let’s go up to the mountain of the LORD

And to the house of the God of Jacob,

So that He may teach us about His ways,

And that we may walk in His paths.”

For from Zion will go forth the law,

And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 4:3 -

And He will judge between many peoples

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

Nation will not lift a sword against nation,

And never again will they [fn]train for war.

With no one to make them afraid,

Because the mouth of the LORD of armies has spoken.

Each in the name of his god,

As for us, we will walk

In the name of the LORD our God forever and ever.

The kingdom of the daughter of Jerusalem.

Is there no king among you,

Or has your counselor perished,

That agony has gripped you like a woman in childbirth?

Daughter of Zion,

Like a woman in childbirth;

For now you will go out of the city,

Live in the field,

And go to Babylon.

There you will be rescued,

There the LORD will redeem you

From the hand of your enemies.

Who say, ‘Let her be defiled,

And let our eyes [fn]gloat over Zion!’

And they do not understand His plan;

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

For I will make your horn iron,

And I will make your hoofs bronze,

So that you may pulverize many peoples,

And dedicate to the LORD their unjust profit,

And their wealth to the Lord of all the earth.
