Bible: Mic 4:7-9

4:7 I will transform the lame into the nucleus of a new nation, 1 

and those far off 2  into a mighty nation.

The Lord will reign over them on Mount Zion,

from that day forward and forevermore.” 3 

4:8 As for you, watchtower for the flock, 4 

fortress of Daughter Zion 5 

your former dominion will be restored, 6 

the sovereignty that belongs to Daughter Jerusalem.

4:9 Jerusalem, why are you 7  now shouting so loudly? 8 

Has your king disappeared? 9 

Has your wise leader 10  been destroyed?

Is this why 11  pain grips 12  you as if you were a woman in labor?
