n you waste places of Jerusalem,
for o the Lord has comforted his people;

q and all the ends of the earth shall see
the salvation of our God.
11 r Depart, depart, go out from there;
touch no unclean thing;
go out from the midst of her; purify yourselves,
s you who bear the vessels of the Lord.
12For you shall not t go out in haste,
and you shall not go in flight,
u for the Lord will go before you,
v and the God of Israel will be your rear guard.
Micah 7:8-138 w Rejoice not over me, O x my enemy;
y when I fall, I shall rise;
z when I sit in darkness,
the Lord will be a light to me.
9 aa I will bear the indignation of the Lord
because I have sinned against him,
until ab he pleads my cause
and executes judgment for me.
ac He will bring me out to the light;
I shall look upon his vindication.
10Then ad my enemy will see,
and shame will cover her who ae said to me,
“Where is the Lord your God?”
af My eyes will look upon her;
now she will be trampled down
ag like the mire of the streets.
11 ah A day for the building of your walls!
In that day the boundary shall be far extended.
12In that day they ▼
▼Hebrew hewill come to you,
aj from Assyria and the cities of Egypt,

al from sea to sea and from mountain to mountain.
13But am the earth will be desolate
because of its inhabitants,
for the fruit of their deeds.
