Michah (Book of Micah), Chapter 4

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 But in the end of days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of HaShem'S house shall be established as the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and peoples shall flow unto it.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 And many nations shall go and say: 'Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of HaShem, and to the house of the G-d of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths'; for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of HaShem from Jerusalem.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 And He shall judge between many peoples, and shall decide concerning mighty nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig-tree; and none shall make them afraid; for the mouth of HaShem of hosts hath spoken.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 For let all the peoples walk each one in the name of its god, but we will walk in the name of HaShem our G-d for ever and ever.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 In that day, saith HaShem, will I assemble her that halteth, and I will gather her that is driven away, and her that I have afflicted;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a mighty nation; and HaShem shall reign over them in mount Zion from thenceforth even for ever.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 And thou, Migdal-eder, the hill of the daughter of Zion, unto thee shall it come; yea, the former dominion shall come, the kingdom of the daughter of Jerusalem.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 Now why dost thou cry out aloud? Is there no King in thee, is thy Counsellor perished, that pangs have taken hold of thee as of a woman in travail?

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 Be in pain, and labour to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in travail; for now shalt thou go forth out of the city, and shalt dwell in the field, and shalt come even unto Babylon; there shalt thou be rescued; there shall HaShem redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 And now many nations are assembled against thee, that say: 'Let her be defiled, and let our eye gaze upon Zion.'

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 But they know not the thoughts of HaShem, neither understand they His counsel; for He hath gathered them as the sheaves to the threshing-floor.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion; for I will make thy horn iron, and I will make thy hoofs brass; and thou shalt beat in pieces many peoples; and thou shalt devote their gain unto HaShem, and their substance unto the L-rd of the whole earth.
