Micah 4
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And it has come to pass, "" In the latter end of the days, "" The mountain of the house of YHWH "" Is established above the top of the mountains, "" And it has been lifted up above the hills, "" And flowed to it have peoples.

2And gone have many nations and said, "" “Come and we go up to the mountain of YHWH, "" And to the house of the God of Jacob, "" And He teaches us of His ways, "" And we walk in His paths,” "" For a law goes forth from Zion, "" And a word of YHWH from Jerusalem.

3And He has judged between many peoples, "" And given a decision to mighty nations far off, "" They have beaten their swords to plowshares, "" And their spears to pruning-hooks, "" Nation does not lift up sword to nation, "" Nor do they learn war anymore.

4And they have sat each under his vine, "" And under his fig tree, "" And there is none troubling, "" For the mouth of YHWH of Hosts has spoken.

5For all the peoples walk, "" Each in the name of its god—and we, "" We walk in the Name of our God YHWH, "" For all time and forever.

6“In that day,” a declaration of YHWH, "" “I gather the halting one, "" And the driven away one I bring together, "" And she whom I have afflicted.

7And I have set the halting for a remnant, "" And the far-off for a mighty nation, "" And YHWH has reigned over them in Mount Zion, "" From now on, and for all time.

8And you, O Tower of Eder, "" Fort of the daughter of Zion, to you it comes, "" Indeed, the former rule has come in, "" The kingdom to the daughter of Jerusalem.”

9Now why do you shout aloud? Is there no king in you? Has your counselor perished, "" That pain as of a travailing woman has taken hold of you?

10Be pained, and bring forth, O daughter of Zion, "" As a travailing woman, "" For now you go forth from the city, "" And you have dwelt in the field, "" And you have gone to Babylon, "" There you are delivered, "" There YHWH redeems you from the hand of your enemies.

11And now, many nations have gathered against you, who are saying: “Let her be defiled, and our eyes look on Zion.”

12They have not known the thoughts of YHWH, "" Nor have they understood His counsel, "" For He has gathered them as a sheaf [into] a threshing-floor.

13Arise, and thresh, O daughter of Zion, "" For I make your horn iron, "" And I make your hooves bronze, "" And you have beaten small many peoples, "" And I have devoted to YHWH their gain, "" And their wealth to the Lord of the whole earth!
