5 Now agather thyself in troops, O daughter of troops:

He hath laid bsiege against us:

cThey shall smite the judge of Israel with a rod cupon the cheek.

dBut thou, eBeth-lehem Ephratah,

Though thou be little among fthe thousands of gJudah,

Yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be hruler in Israel;

Whose igoings forth have been kfrom of old, kfrom everlasting.

Therefore will he give them up,

Until the time that lshe which travaileth hath brought forth:

Then mthe remnant of his brethren nshall return unto the children of Israel.

And khe shall stand and ||ofeed in the strength of the Lord,

In the majesty of the name of the Lord his God;

And they shall abide:

For now pqshall he be great unto rthe ends of the earth.

And psthis man shall be the peace,

tWhen the Assyrian shall come into our land:

And when he shall tread in our palaces,

Then shall uwe raise against him vseven wxshepherds,

And veight wprincipal men.

And they shall waste the land of Assyria with the sword,

And the land of zNimrod ||in the entrances thereof:

Thus ashall he deliver us from the Assyrian,

bWhen he cometh into our land,

bAnd when he treadeth within our borders.

And cthe remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many people

deAs a dew from the Lord,

dfAs the showers upon the grass,

That tarrieth not for man,

Nor waiteth for the sons of men.

And cthe remnant of Jacob shall be among the Gentiles in the midst of many people

gAs a lion among the beasts of the forest,

gAs a young lion among the flocks of ||sheep:

Who, if he go through, both treadeth down, and teareth in pieces,

hAnd none can deliver.

iThine hand shall be lifted up upon thine adversaries,

And all thine enemies shall be cut off.

10  And it shall come to pass kin that day, saith the Lord,

lThat I will cut off thy horses out of the midst of thee,

And I will destroy lthy chariots:

11  And mI will cut off the cities of thy land,

And mthrow down all thy strong holds:

12  And I will cut off nwitchcrafts out of thine hand;

And thou shalt have no more osoothsayers:

13  Thy graven images also pwill I cut off,

And thy ||qstanding images out of the midst of thee;

And rthou shalt no more sworship the work of thine hands.

14  And I will pluck up thy tgroves out of the midst of thee:

mSo will I destroy thy ||ucities.

15  And vI will execute vengeance in anger and fury upon the heathen,

Such as they have not heard.
