Micah 4

1And at the last days the mountain of the Lord shall be manifest, established on the tops of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and the peoples shall hasten to it. 2And many nations shall go, and say, Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and they shall show us His way, and we will walk in His paths: for out of Zion shall go forth a law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. 3And He shall judge among many peoples, and shall rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plow shares, and their spears into sickles; and nation shall no more lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn to war any more. 4And everyone shall rest under his vine, and everyone under his fig tree; and no one shall alarm them: for the mouth of the Lord Almighty has spoken these words. 5For all other nations shall walk everyone in his own way, but we will walk in the name of the Lord our God forever and ever. 6In that day, says the Lord, I will gather her that is bruised, and will receive her that is cast out, and those whom I rejected. 7And I will make her that was bruised a remnant, and her that was rejected a mighty nation: and the Lord shall reign over them in Mount Zion from now on, even forever. 8And you, dark tower of the flock, daughter of Zion, on you the dominion shall come and enter in, even the first kingdom from Babylon to the daughter of Jerusalem. 9And now, why have you known calamities? Is there no king in you? Or has your counsel perished that pangs as of a woman in labor have seized upon you? 10Be in pain, and strengthen yourself, and draw near, O daughter of Zion, as a woman in labor: for now you shall go forth out of the city, and you shall dwell in the plain, and you shall reach even to Babylon: there shall the Lord your God deliver you, and there shall He redeem you out of the hand of your enemies. 11And now have many nations gathered against you, saying, We will rejoice, and our eyes shall look upon Zion. 12But they know not the thought of the Lord, and have not understood His counsel: for He has gathered them as sheaves of the floor. 13Arise, and thresh them, O daughter of Zion: for I will make your horns iron, and I will make your hoofs brass: and you shall utterly destroy many nations, and shall consecrate their abundance to the Lord, and their strength to the Lord of all the earth.
