NASB — Micah 5 — KJV

Birth of the King in Bethlehem

  1INow muster yourselves in troops, daughter of troops;
  IIThey have laid siege against us;
  With a rod they will asmite the judge of Israel on the cheek.
  2IBut as for ayou, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
  [Too] little to be among the clans of Judah,
  From byou One will go forth for Me to be cruler in Israel.
  IIHis goings forth are dfrom long ago,
  From the days of eternity.”
  3 Therefore He will agive them [up] until the time
  When she bwho is in labor has borne a child.
  Then the cremainder of His brethren
  Will return to the sons of Israel.
  4 And He will arise and ashepherd [His flock]
  In the strength of the LORD,
  In the majesty of the name of the LORD His God.
  And they will Iremain,
  Because IIat that time He will be great
  To the bends of the earth.
  5 This One awill be [our] peace.
  When the bAssyrian invades our land,
  When he tramples on our Icitadels,
  Then we will raise against him
  Seven shepherds and eight leaders of men.
  6 They will ashepherd the land of Assyria with the sword,
  The land of bNimrod at its entrances;
  And He will cdeliver [us] from the Assyrian
  When he attacks our land
  And when he tramples our territory.

The birth of Christ.

1 ¶ Now gather thyself in troops, O daughter of troops: he hath laid siege against us: they shall smite the judge of Israel with a rod upon the cheek. 2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, [though] thou be little among the thousands of Judah, [yet] out of thee shall he come forth unto me [that is] to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth [have been] from of old, from everlasting. 3 Therefore will he give them up, until the time [that] she which travaileth hath brought forth: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel.

His Kingdom.

4 ¶ And he shall stand and feed in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD his God; and they shall abide: for now shall he be great unto the ends of the earth. 5 And this [man] shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men. 6 And they shall waste the land of Assyria with the sword, and the land of Nimrod in the entrances thereof: thus shall he deliver [us] from the Assyrian, when he cometh into our land, and when he treadeth within our borders. 7 And the remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many people as a dew from the LORD, as the showers upon the grass, that tarrieth not for man, nor waiteth for the sons of men.

His conquest.

8 ¶ And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the Gentiles in the midst of many people as a lion among the beasts of the forest, as a young lion among the flocks of sheep: who, if he go through, both treadeth down, and teareth in pieces, and none can deliver. 9 Thine hand shall be lifted up upon thine adversaries, and all thine enemies shall be cut off. 10 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD, that I will cut off thy horses out of the midst of thee, and I will destroy thy chariots: 11 And I will cut off the cities of thy land, and throw down all thy strong holds: 12 And I will cut off witchcrafts out of thine hand; and thou shalt have no [more] soothsayers: 13 Thy graven images also will I cut off, and thy standing images out of the midst of thee; and thou shalt no more worship the work of thine hands. 14 And I will pluck up thy groves out of the midst of thee: so will I destroy thy cities. 15 And I will execute vengeance in anger and fury upon the heathen, such as they have not heard.
