A Ruler from Bethlehem

2But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, are only a small village among all the people of Judah. Yet a ruler of Israel will come from you, one whose origins are from the distant past.H1035H672H6810H505H3063H3318H4910H3478H4163H6924H3117H5769 3The people of Israel will be abandoned to their enemies until the woman in labor gives birth. Then at last his fellow countrymen will return from exile to their own land.H5414H6256H3205H3205H3499H251H7725H1121H3478 4And he will stand to lead his flock with the Lord’s strength, in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God. Then his people will live there undisturbed, for he will be highly honored around the world.H5975H7462H5797H3068H1347H8034H3068H430H3427H1431H657H776 5And he will be the source of peace. When the Assyrians invade our land and break through our defenses, we will appoint seven rulers to watch over us, eight princes to lead us.H7965H804H935H776H1869H759H6965H7651H7462H8083H5257H120 6They will rule Assyria with drawn swords and enter the gates of the land of Nimrod. He will rescue us from the Assyrians when they pour over the borders to invade our land.H7462H776H804H2719H776H5248H6607H5337H804H935H776H1869H1366

The Remnant Purified

7Then the remnant left in Israel will take their place among the nations. They will be like dew sent by the Lord or like rain falling on the grass, which no one can hold back and no one can restrain.H7611H3290H7130H7227H5971H2919H3068H7241H6212H6960H376H3176H1121H120 8The remnant left in Israel will take their place among the nations. They will be like a lion among the animals of the forest, like a strong young lion among flocks of sheep and goats, pouncing and tearing as they go with no rescuer in sight.H7611H3290H1471H7130H7227H5971H738H929H3293H3715H5739H6629H5674H7429H2963H5337 9The people of Israel will stand up to their foes, and all their enemies will be wiped out.H3027H7311H6862H341H3772 10“In that day,” says the Lord, “I will slaughter your horses and destroy your chariots.H3117H5002H3068H3772H5483H7130H6H4818 11I will tear down your walls and demolish your defenses.H3772H6145H5892H776H2040H4013 12I will put an end to all witchcraft, and there will be no more fortune-tellers.H3772H3785H3027H6049 13I will destroy all your idols and sacred pillars, so you will never again worship the work of your own hands.H6456H3772H4676H7130H7812H4639H3027 14I will abolish your idol shrines with their Asherah poles and destroy your pagan cities.H5428H842H7130H8045H6145H5892 15I will pour out my vengeance on all the nations that refuse to obey me.”H6213H5359H639H2534H1471H8085
