gather yourself in troops, O daughter of troops;
He has laid a siege against us.
With a rod they strike on the acheek
The Judge of Israel.
(But you, O aBethlehem
So little to be among the thousands of Judah,
From you there will 1bcome
forth to Me
He who is to be 2Ruler
And His goings forth are from cancient
From the days of eternity.)
He will give them up until the time
When she who is in labor delivers the child;
Then the remainder of His brothers will return,
Along with the children of Israel.
He will stand and afeed His flock
in the strength of Jehovah,
In the majesty of the name of Jehovah His God;
And they will abide, for now He will be great
Unto the ends of the earth.
this One will be the apeace
When Assyria comes into our land
And when he treads in our palaces,
We will raise up against him seven shepherds
And eight princes of men.
they will waste the land of Assyria with the sword
And the land of aNimrod
at its entrances.
will save us
When he comes into our land
And when he treads in our border.
of Jacob will be
In the midst of many peoples
Like abundant showers upon the herbage,
Which do not tarry for man
And do not wait for the sons of men.
the remnant of Jacob will be among the nations,
In the midst of many peoples,
Like a alion
among the beasts of the forest,
Like a young lion among the flocks of sheep,
Who, if he should pass through, tramples under
And tears up, and there is none to deliver from him
hand will be raised up against your adversaries,
And all your enemies will be cut off.
I will cut off your horses from the midst of you
And will destroy your chariots.
I will cut off the cities of your land
And will throw down all your strongholds.
I will cut off the sorceries from your hand,
And you will not have soothsayers.
I will cut off your idols
And your pillars from your midst;
And you will no longer worship
of your hands.
I will pluck up your Asherahs from your midst,
And I will destroy your cities.
I will execute avengeance
in anger and wrath
Upon the nations that have not listened.
