Micah 5:1-4, 5:10-15

5*Now you are walled around with a wall;*
   siege is laid against us;
with a rod they strike the ruler of Israel
   upon the cheek.

The Ruler from Bethlehem


2 *But you, O Bethlehem of Ephrathah,
   who are one of the little clans of Judah,
from you shall come forth for me
   one who is to rule in Israel,
whose origin is from of old,
   from ancient days.
3 Therefore he shall give them up until the time
   when she who is in labour has brought forth;
then the rest of his kindred shall return
   to the people of Israel.
4 And he shall stand and feed his flock in the strength of the Lord,
   in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God.
And they shall live secure, for now he shall be great
   to the ends of the earth;
10 On that day, says the Lord,
   I will cut off your horses from among you
   and will destroy your chariots;
11 and I will cut off the cities of your land
   and throw down all your strongholds;
12 and I will cut off sorceries from your hand,
   and you shall have no more soothsayers;
13 and I will cut off your images
   and your pillars from among you,
and you shall bow down no more
   to the work of your hands;
14 and I will uproot your sacred poles* from among you
   and destroy your towns.
15 And in anger and wrath I will execute vengeance
   on the nations that did not obey.
