The Lord Shall Rescue Zion

Micah 4

6 "In that day," says the LORD,
f "I will assemble the lame,
g I will gather the outcast
And those whom I have afflicted;
7 I will make the lame h a remnant,
And the outcast a strong nation;
So the LORD i will reign over them in Mount Zion
From now on, even forever.

8 And you, O tower of the flock,
The stronghold of the daughter of Zion,
To you shall it come,
Even the former dominion shall come,
The kingdom of the daughter of Jerusalem."

9 Now why do you cry aloud?
j Is there no king in your midst?
Has your counselor perished?
For k pangs have seized you like a woman in 1 labor.
10 Be in pain, and labor to bring forth,
O daughter of Zion,
Like a woman in birth pangs.
For now you shall go forth from the city,
You shall dwell in the field,
And to l Babylon you shall go.
There you shall be delivered;
There the m LORD will n redeem you
From the hand of your enemies.

11 o Now also many nations have gathered against you,
Who say, "Let her be defiled,
And let our eye look upon Zion."
12 But they do not know q the thoughts of the LORD,
Nor do they understand His counsel;
For He will gather them r like sheaves to the threshing floor.
13 "Arise s and t thresh, O daughter of Zion;
For I will make your horn iron,
And I will make your hooves bronze;
You shall u beat in pieces many peoples;
v I will consecrate their gain to the LORD,
And their substance to w the Lord of the whole earth."
