O daughter of troops;
He has laid siege against us;
They will strike the judge of Israel with a rod on the cheek.
The Coming Messiah
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 5:2 - “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
Though you are little among the thousands of Judah,
Yet out of you shall come forth to Me
The One to be Ruler in Israel,
Whose goings forth are from of old,
From everlasting.”
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 5:3 - Therefore He shall give them up,
Until the time that she who is in labor has given birth;
Then the remnant of His brethren
Shall return to the children of Israel.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 5:4 - And He shall stand and feed His flock
In the strength of the LORD,
In the majesty of the name of the LORD His God;

To the ends of the earth;

When the Assyrian comes into our land,
And when he treads in our palaces,
Then we will raise against him
Seven shepherds and eight princely men.
Judgment on Israel’s Enemies

And the land of Nimrod at its entrances;
Thus He shall deliver us from the Assyrian,
When he comes into our land
And when he treads within our borders.

Shall be in the midst of many peoples,
Like dew from the LORD,
Like showers on the grass,
That tarry for no man
Nor wait for the sons of men.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 5:8 - And the remnant of Jacob
Shall be among the Gentiles,
In the midst of many peoples,
Like a lion among the beasts of the forest,
Like a young lion among flocks of sheep,
Who, if he passes through,
Both treads down and tears in pieces,
And none can deliver.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 5:9 - Your hand shall be lifted against your adversaries,
And all your enemies shall be cut off.

“That I will cut off your horses from your midst
And destroy your chariots.

And throw down all your strongholds.

And you shall have no soothsayers.

And your sacred pillars from your midst;
You shall no more worship the work of your hands;
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 5:14 - I will pluck your wooden images[fn] from your midst;
Thus I will destroy your cities.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 5:15 - And I will execute vengeance in anger and fury
On the nations that have not heard.”[fn]
