Bible: Micah 4:1-4

Better Days Ahead for Jerusalem

4:1 In the future 1  the Lord’s Temple Mount will be the most important mountain of all; 2 

it will be more prominent than other hills. 3 

People will stream to it.

4:2 Many nations will come, saying,

Come on! Let’s go up to the Lord’s mountain,

to the temple 4  of Jacob’s God,

so he can teach us his commands 5 

and we can live by his laws.” 6 

For Zion will be the source of instruction;

the Lord’s teachings will proceed from Jerusalem. 7 

4:3 He will arbitrate 8  between many peoples

and settle disputes between many 9  distant nations. 10 

They will beat their swords into plowshares, 11 

and their spears into pruning hooks. 12 

Nations will not use weapons 13  against other nations,

and they will no longer train for war.

4:4 Each will sit under his own grapevine

or under his own fig tree without any fear. 14 

The Lord who commands armies has decreed it. 15
